How to Select a Netball

by Siraj

Selecting a good netball should be very straightforward if you go to a quality sports gear provider. There are certain requirements for the ball in competition playing, however, and it is useful to be aware of this if you're a coach, umpire, etc., or just starting a team up.



Select a ball that is size 5. This means that its circumference should measure between 69 centimeter (27.2 in) and 71cm (27" and 28").


Check the weight. The ideal weight is between 400 grams and 450 grams (14 ounces and 16 ounces).


Get the right material. A netball should be made of leather or rubber. Other materials might be appropriate but check with your local regulations first and also ask the retailer about quality and durability.
