Match balls

Below are 3 examples of our Best Selling Netballs ranging from our elite, indoor netball to our more junior netball - great for matches but training as well! 


FLARE - £43.99

One of our top Match Balls, the Flare is used by international teams for both matches and training sessions. This ball is ideal for higher-level teams playing indoors - outdoor play would be better with one of our other netballs featured below due to this high-quality match ball wearing from easily outside. The Flare features fusion foam technology for a softer feel and the hybrid grip configuration.

SPECTRA - £20.99

An ideal match ball for club and county players and teams to practice their skills at training or at home. The Spectra is also good for both indoor and outdoor training and matches with its multi-laminate construction for durability as well as hydratec and duragrip - a pebble-like grip technology that does not wear down as quickly and therefore ideal for outdoor use.

BLAZE - £11.99

The perfect match or training ball for schools or clubs with durable moulded construction and a blended rubber ball surface giving almost perfect roundness. The ball has been embossed with the traditional seam lines and the duragrip technology offers a pebble-like grip that gives good handling properties. 

The Blaze match balls have a rubber bladder and are suited to longer lasting on outdoor courts as the grip does not wear down as quickly as other match balls.
