The world squash association is responsible for all technical details and specifications. There are lots of conditions that directly affect the bounce of a ball. Here I am going to list the various colored dots which are available nowadays.
Super Slow-Yellow Dot
This is the best official competition ball. This ball is able to cool down very quickly if the temperature is cold as well as the playing rallies are short.
Slow-White or Green Dot
This ball is an ideal ball for winter. Also, squash players are not very experienced with this white or green dot ball so that’s why squash players do not hit the ball particularly hard.
Medium- Red Dot
This ball is also one of the best squash balls and it is often used by coaches. Medium –Red dot ball not varies in bounce as much as yellow dot ball.
When the players develop hand eye co-ordination for the purpose to gain confidence then the blue dot ball is ideal. Blue dot ball gives more time to the player to strike the ball so that’s why it is very suitable for the peoples who are a beginner to squash.
Dunlop is the most recognized as well as the most popular brand for squash balls. They are now producing 4 different types of squash balls. So here I am going to list 4 different types of Dunlop balls.
