Why Does a netball bounce higher than a basketball?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

I have not actually tried this, but would I bet on the basketball. I am pretty sure that regulation basketball are inflated with several more pounds of pressure , and basketballs need to be able to bounce appropriately, since the dribble is an important part of the game. Volleyballs need to be soft .

What is a basketball's main components?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The four main components of a basket ball are the cover, the stitching, the lining and the bladder. The surface of basket balls or coverings are made up from synthetic leather and not full grain leather (as used in the past) because leather has a tendency to absorb water causing the ball to become very heavy. Synthetic leather is typically made from polyurethane and poly vinyl chloride. DIS DUDE IS GAY

Why is a woman's basketball a different size than a man's basketball?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The basketball is equipment and is a different size and weight for customization for the player. The idea was proposed by Karen Logan in 1978 when she wrote a 3-page proposal to the WBL, the first Women's Professional Basketball League, to create a ball that would fit women's hands because the equipment for many other sports is different, such as tennis and golf. See this reference for a full explanation: Pitts, Brenda G. 1984. Effects of a Smaller, Lighter Basketball on Skill Performance of Female Basketball Players. Dissertation; University of Alabama. This study was used by the WBCA - Women's Basketball Coaches Association - to justify adopting the ball officially for girls and women.

On the average, a woman's hand is smaller than a man's hand. It is in my estimation that a basketball designed for women is smaller so that women who play organized basketball are able to handle the basketball in a manner that allows for greater control due to the smaller size of it.
