    With 28.5” basketballs, you’ll have the perfect size for female and younger players. The size of a basketball is measured by the circumference of the ball. You’ll find that 28.5” basketballs are made for pre-teen children. Women’s basketball leagues also use the 28.5” basketball, sometimes called a size 6 ball. A standard men’s basketball is a size 7 ball, which has a 29.5” circumference. Some manufacturers also offer size 5 basketballs, which measure 27.5” in circumference. These are made for children younger than 9 years old. Using 28.5” basketballs for younger players and women is a smart idea. The slightly smaller ball fits the hands of kids and women better than the standard size ball. This allows for more successful ballhanding skills and shooting results.
