Best Squash Balls

Playing a great game of squash requires a great racket and squash shoes (along with some talent when it comes to the game), but there is a third vital ingredient which most of us do not think about. You cannot play a game of squash without a squash ball.

A great squash ball will hold up to being hit multiple times, both against your racket and against the wall. The will have enough speed and bounce to keep the game flowing, and enough visibility for you to be able to see the ball as it flies through the air.

When it comes to squash balls, the technology has advanced through the years, and the balls which we play with today are the best of the best. Let’s take a look at some of our favorites, starting with our favorites.

1 - Best All-Around

Dunlop Pro High Altitude - Green Dot (One dozen) Squash Balls

Why we like it:

We like that you get a dozen balls in this pack, enough to last for a long time. We also like that these are great balls for all level of players and will give superior bounce at high altitudes.


Summary:

These balls are specifically designed for use at high altitudes. If you live at a high altitude, then these balls will give you superior bounce and speed. When you buy a squash product from Dunlop, you know that you are getting a high-quality product, and these balls are no different.

The bounce is superior to most balls, and you may even find that you get a little more bounce than you are used to. You will also find that that bounce translates into more speed, which will help to improve your reaction time and your game.

The price for these balls is for a dozen, so you are getting a lot of balls for your squash games. We like that you have plenty of backup balls, as squash balls will inevitably break down over time. This pack will keep you going for a long time.

We like that a professional player has come together with Technifibre to create a ball which is perfect for professionals. Great for enhancing your game.

When you take the number one player in the world and have them design a squash ball with you, you know that you are getting the very best. That is exactly what has happened here.

4 - Best Intermediate Balls

DUNLOP Competition Squash Balls (3 Ball Tube)

Why we like it:

Great for intermediate players who have gone as far as they can go with beginner balls. The hang time will help you to elevate and work on your game.


Summary:

Once you have gotten to grips with the game, these balls are perfect for taking your game to the next level. These balls have been designed specifically for intermediate players who play at regular altitudes.


One thing which we really like about these balls is the extra hang time in the air. The balls are one yellow dot but generate a lot more speed than you would expect. That leads to more time in the air, and more time to get your shot away. They are the same size as professional balls, so the transition between the two is an easy one.

When we played with these balls, we appreciated the consistent bounce we got. The speed and hang time was also a nice challenge to add to our game.

We like that these balls are accessible to beginners and advanced players. The bounce is consistent which means that your play is consistent too.


Summary:

This is a great set of balls for any level of squash player. You get three balls in the pack, each is black in color and has two yellow dots. This means that the balls provide you with consistent bounce and great speed. Beginners will especially appreciate the consistent bounce while more advanced players will be able to focus on the enhanced speed in their game.

These balls are durable and tough. Even though you only get three balls in the pack, they will last you for a long time. They meet all of the World Squash Federation specifications, and they are ideal for tournament play and practice.

I've always loved to bowl, I've always loved to play (and watch) darts, I love picking up a ping pong paddle - I could go on. That's why I've created this site. I'm no professional but a good ol' down to earth guy, that wants to help others pick out the best products (it makes the games so much more fun) and get better at the same time (so you can beat your friends).
