Red Ball: larger ball with 25% air for younger kids and size, ages 4-7. Slower, lower bouncing ball with a bigger circumference enabling smaller kids to be more successful with hitting.
Orange Dot: normal size ball, lighter weight with 50% air for kids ages 6-10. This ball is for kids still developing strokes and smaller kids. It is light so it can’t travel too far and the bounce is low for a good contact height.
Green Dot: normal size ball, light weight with 75% air. This all is for the more advanced or older kids ages 10-14 that are now playing points and have developed consistent strokes. Lighter than a regular ball and less air so the bounce is still lower and the lighter ball helps with consistency. Next ball from here is the yellow ball!
