Ball Storage Tips

Any air filled ball (such as a basketball or netball) should be stored at room temperature to prevent misshaping or deflation. The term ‘room temperature’ refers not to a cold garage, but to a temperate clime. Both heat and cold will cause expansion of the air in the ball and can cause it to distort and lose its roundness.

Most importantly with ball storage however is to make sure that it is not exposed to the elements when you are not using it. By leaving it outside in the rain, or playing constantly on gravel or dirt, you are at risk of damaging the exterior of the ball and reducing its lifespan.
