Balls are engineered objects made of rubber or animal skin with a spherical or oval shape that are often used for various ball sports and team sports. With functions that vary between different sporting competitions, players might kick, throw, or hit a ball in order to earn a goal, or points, in order to beat the opponent. The Ancient Greeks and Egyptians used balls primarily for play, but today balls serve a myriad of functions beyond sports as ball-bearings, exercise balls, and toys. Adults and children worldwide use balls in order to participate in a sport or simply for entertainment, and exercise. The ball is one of the most fundamental physical forms and has universal appeal to people of all ages and backgrounds.

Racquetball
Group of scaled illustrations of various sporting balls compared to the Racquetball

A Racquetball is the ball used to play the Racquetball sport and is shot by players through the use of a Racquetball Racquet. Racquetballs are hollow, constructed from rubber, and are not covered in fabric. They come in a variety of colors, but are traditionally blue.

Each of the color variations of the Racquetball has a purpose. Black Racquetballs are used for longer rallies and are the slowest of all Racquetballs. Blue Racquetballs provide medium speed, green Racquetballs are used for fast rallies, and purple Racquetballs are typically used in professional tournaments. Red Racquetballs are typically used outside and pink Racquetballs are easy to spot indoors.

Racquetballs have a diameter of 2.25” (57 mm) and circumference of 7.07” (18 cm). The mass of a Racquetball is 1.4 oz (40 g).

Tennis Ball

A Tennis Ball is a ball designed for the sport of tennis. At major sporting events Tennis Balls are a fluorescent yellow, but in recreational play, they can be virtually any color. A fibrous felt that modifies aerodynamic properties cover the ball, and each one has a white curvilinear oval.

To be approved for regulation play, Tennis Balls must conform to certain criteria for size, weight, deformation, and bounce. Due to cheaper labor costs and materials, the majority of Tennis Balls are manufactured in the Far East. Starting from the 1980s, Tennis Balls come in plastic cans with a full-top pull-tab seal and a plastic lid that fit three or four balls per can.

Tennis Balls have a diameter of 2.575”-2.7” (6.54-6.86 cm) and circumference of 8.09”-8.48” (20.6-21.5 cm). The mass of a Tennis Ball must be between 1.975-2.095 oz (56-59.4 g).

Basketball
Dimensioned drawing showing the circumference and diameter of a professional Basketball

Basketball sizes come in variations for different ages, genders, and level of play. The official NBA and competitive professional basketball is 29.5” | 74.9 cm in circumference with a diameter between 9.43”-9.51” | 24-24.2 cm. Professional basketballs must be inflated to a pressure between 7.5-8.5 PSI and cannot exceed the maximum weight of 22 ounces. When choosing a basketball, consider whether the play environment will be primarily outdoor or indoor because indoor basketballs perform best as full-grain leather constructions and outdoor basketballs are better as rubber.
