The ball makes you play faster

The ball may feel fast the first few times you play with it - but after a little practice you will be able to control it fully and hopefully fall in love with the speed of the ball like we did.

Keeping the ball in shape

The first time you pump the ball, give it a day to really fall into the shape. Since the inner material is organic the Ball will loose a little air over a few weeks time. This is a good thing – it will keep the material elastic and soft. Eir recommend that you give the Ball valve a drop of ball pump oil every 4-6 months to keep the valve flexible and minimize air loss.

The ball may feel hard in cold weather

Consider deflating it and keep it somewhere warm for a short time – e.g. close to a heater for an hour. Then give it a 30 seconds massage with your hands. The ball will be softer when you inflate it again.

The balls are hand stitched
