The Different Types of Squash Ball:
There are three different types of squash balls. The balls are always black and for competition or intermediate players they have one-or two-yellow-coloured dots.
For beginners or children there is a single white dot ball.
The difference between these balls is in their bounce. Your level determines which ball is the most suitable for you.
The squash ball with a double yellow dot is called the HEAD ‘Prime Squash Ball’.
The Prime has the lowest bounce and requires a good technique from both players. The double yellow dot is the official ball at all national and international tournaments. It´s suitable for very advanced players – and it´s the most commonly sold.
The ball with a single yellow dot is called the HEAD ‘Tournament Squash Ball’ and it´s the best choice for intermediate players.
The Tournament Squash ball bounces up to 10% more than the Prime and this ball can also be used by advanced players in training sessions and especially in cold weather conditions.
Finally, the ball with the white dot is the HEAD ‘Start Squash Ball’ and as the name suggests, it´s designed for beginners.
