Basketball balls, the current legislation
There is a real regulation on the regulation of basketball. For this reason, before proceeding with the purchase, we always advise you to consult the technical regulations of the Italian Basketball Federation or request more information and advice.
First, when we talk about basketball balls, we must refer to an article with an orange spherical shape, divided into eight segments by black lines.
Secondly, the basketball must comply with the following measures:
circumference: ranges from 74.9 to 78 cm for male and from 72.4 to 73.7 for female;
diameter: varies according to the reference league, if male the diameter will correspond to about 23/24 cm, if female we remain on 23 cm;
weight: for male competitions it can vary from 567g up to 650g, while for female challenges it starts from a minimum of 510g up to a maximum of 567g.
These variations depend on the level and age of the players. For greater completeness the regulation provides for the pressure of basketball balls, which must be adjusted in such a way as to allow a rebound of 1.2 or 1.4 meters high, dropping it from 1.8 meters.
