Ball is Gripy

Ball leather feels good initially, however it's very sticky when dribbling the ball.

Thank you for spending time to write us feedback and I apologize for bringing you this unsatisfying experience.

All of our basketball are manufactured following the spec of the FIBA. In general FIBA basketball is slightly lighter & smaller than NBA basketball because using the different spec. In this case, BT500 Grip Adult Size 7 Basketball is following the spec of the FIBA size 7 to manufactured, so it will be slightly lighter & smaller than the size 7 NBA basketball.

Please let me know if you need any further assistance and do not hesitate contact me at

High quality ball

Nice grip and high quality at a great price. Better than our previous Under Amour ball. My 11 year old loves it!

Personal favourite amongst the Tarmak Basketballs

Very comfortable to hold and dribble, especially with its great grip which makes it a joy to play!

Poor grip and bad quality

This kind of quality is not expected from Decathelon. STRICTLY NOT RECOMMENDED, 0 PRICE VALUE. Didn't find place to upload pictures: look here

Grips poor, heavy and flat bounce

Big fan of the Tarmak B300, which unfortunately has been discontinued. Bought this instead and whilst its grip felt brilliant in the retail outlet, realised it became very mediocre outdoor as dust settled on the ball. Despite having the right air pressure, the ball feels heavy and the bounce flat. Disappointed with this ball. Don't intend on using it.


We apologise for the inconvenience caused to you by Tarmak Basketball BT500 X Grip.
BT500 X Grip is known an excellent grip thanks to the grains on the polyurethane outer cover. The bladder is 70% polyester and 30%  nylon, which ensures a perfect bounce for this basketball. 

I personally have used this basketball and I love the grip and ball feel that Tarmak BT500 X Grip provides! Normally dust should not be a reason for affecting the Grip of BT500 Basketball. We will write to you personally to get more feedback from you on the usage of this basketball.

It is great to know that you loved playing with the Tarmak B300 basketball. If you are looking for a similar basketball, please explore our new range of Tarmak R300 basketballs (please click on link). This new range of Tarmak R300 Basketball has a foam rubber outer cover for a good ball touch and deeper rib channels for great grip, similar to Tarmak B300 basketballs.

Please keep writing to us. Your feedback helps us improve :)

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.At Tarmak, we recommend a pressure of 0.62 bar.Enjoy your match!

What ball size to choose?

The ball size depends on the player's age and sex.Size 1: From ages 2 and upSize 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 groupsSize 6: Boys ages 11 and 12 / Under 13 age groupSize 6: Girls - Women of all ages over 11Size 7: Boys - Men of all ages over 13

What ball should you use?

If you want a very durable ball, go for a rubber ball. If you want a ball with a good feel, leather or synthetic are what you need.

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
