Wilson Basketballs


Wilson basketballs are the official game ball of the NCAA. Many of them are also approved by the NFHS for high school competition. They come in all basketball sizes, are built for all indoor and outdoor playing surfaces, and can be found in a variety of colors.

Wilson even makes a glow-in-the-dark basketball for some fun night-time hoops action! 

The first step in purchasing a ball is to select the right size for your youngster.

Once you've determined the size of ball you need, it's time to select the type of ball you want. You have a choice between leather, composite, and rubber basketballs. Not sure what you're looking for?

Compare leather vs. composite vs. rubber covering

Wilson basketballs are built with the following advanced technology that make them stand out from the competition:

  • Wave design - Grooves are cut into the covering to create ridges for better ball control.
  • Laid in channels - Unique Aqua-Grip channels made with pebbled composite leather replace traditional rubber for improved "grip-ability."
  • Moisture absorbing - Patented technology keeps moisture away from players' hands.
  • Cushion core technology – Combination of low-density sponge rubber and ultra-durable butyl rubber produce an exceptional feel.
