3| What material should your ball be made of?
Foam, polyurethane, synthetic leather: there are plenty of materials and complicated words to be found in this sport. We tell you everything you need to know!
Beginner: Volleyballs coated in soft foam are ideal for beginners. Why is that? When you start playing the game, you have to get used to your forearms striking the ball. It goes without saying that a ball coated in soft foam is not going to hurt your arms. You might also want to wear sleeves for added protection.
Intermediates: Synthetic leather is the ideal coating for more experienced players. Harder to the touch, these balls help you perfect your game. We can't promise you'll be smashing it on every attack, but ball trajectory will be considerably better.
Advanced: For advanced and pro players a microfibre coating is ideal. Boasting a dimpled surface, this is a ball that delivers a perfect trajectory and accuracy, worthy of your skills. Yes, our volleyballs have dimples!
