Types of Squash Balls ?
Larger balls (Hi-Balls, Racquetball balls)
These balls are good for children to gain hand eye on the court. Once they have gained hand eye co-ordination the Blue bot ball is the better option. The Larger balls can become dangers on the court once they have gained co-ordination as it will bounce all around the court.
Blue Bot (fast Ball)
This ball is used by coaches all around New Zealand as it keeps it temperature. This ball will bounce more than the single bot yellow ball. This ball is a good ball to use if you are starting out in the game or if its a little cold.
Yellow Bot (Slow)
This is the official New Zealand Squash competition ball. This ball will cool down faster than the blue bot ball. But is better than a blue bot in warmer conditions and the rallies are long.
Double Yellow (very Slow)
This ball is the New Zealand Squash competition ball for higher graded players. It is slower again than the single yellow bot. It cools down faster than the yellow bot. We only recoumend this ball if you are a higher graded player or if the temperature is warm and the rallies are long.
