How is the Tarmak R900 basketball unique and innovative?
The Tarmak R900 basketball is one of a kind.
Some balls slip through your fingers, bounce poorly, and wear out quickly. We wanted to offer a solution to these problems
In addition to a reinforced exterior, the ball has an interior
bladder made from 100% butyl. This prevents air from leaking out so you can play 3 times more before having to reinflate it.
What makes the R900 so grippy?
The R900 Tarmak basketball comes with an exclusive rubber covering that makes it robust and exceptionally grippy.
The ball's unique pebbling also makes it very easy to hold.
What ball size to choose?
The ball size depends on the player's age and sex.
Size 1: From ages 2 and up
Size 3 to size 5: Girls or boys ages 4 to 6/Baby basket under 7 age group (depending on levels and clubs)
Size 5: Boys and girls ages 7 to 10/Under 9 and under 11 age groups
Size 6: Boys ages 11 and 12/Under 13 age group
Size 6: Girls - Women of all ages over 11
Size 7: Boys - Men over the age of 13 / under 15, under 17, under 20 and Seniors.
What ball should you use
If you want a very robust ball, go for a rubber ball. If you want a ball with a good feel, leather or synthetic are what you need.
How much should you inflate your basketball?
A basketball that is overinflated or underinflated doesn't give you the best match experience.
The recommended pressure is clearly marked on the ball by the manufacturer.
Ideally, you should use a pump with a pressure gauge so that you can be more precise.
For the R900, we recommend inflating your ball to 0.55 bar.
Enjoy your match!
What height basket should you choose?
The official height of a basketball basket is 3.05m (rim height).
If you want a basketball basket for your child, you need something that will grow with them.
For younger kids there isn't an official height so you can choose whatever suits them best.
Up to the age of 10, club baskets are set at 2.60m.
After the age of 10, both girls and boys play with 3.05m baskets
