Squash Balls

The following link  will detail the technical aspects of the bounce of the Yellow Dot Ball under various temperature conditions.
Hereunder is a summary of the various coloured dots, eg
  • Super Slow - Yellow Dot
    • This is the official competition ball.  This ball will cool down very quickly particularly if the playing rallies are short, and the temperature is cold.
  • Slow - White or Green Dot
    • This ball is suitable when it is winter, the players are not very experienced, and do not hit the ball particularly hard.
  • Medium - Red Dot
    • This ball is often used by coaches as it tends to be a "constant temperature" and will not vary in bounce as much as the yellow dot ball.
  • Fast - Blue Dot
    • When new players are beginning to gain confidence, and develop hand eye co-ordination, the blue dot will be more suitable and give more time to strike the ball. 
    • This ball, if used by better players, could be dangerous as it will bounce all around the court, out of control to some extent.
