Dunlop Squash Balls

I once heard Dunlop squash balls make up 95% of all squash balls sold. I’m not sure if that’s 100% true, but it does seem plausible to me. I can’t remember buying any other brand of squash balls in my adult lifetime.

Double Yellow Dot Squash Balls

The most common variety of Dunlop squash balls is the “double yellow dot”, also known as Dunlop Pro. These are for advanced players and are the least bouncy.

They have two different packaging styles (I think the black is newer) but they’re both the same ball.

Single Yellow Dot Squash Balls

The next ball in the lineup is the Dunlop yellow dot, also known as the Dunlop Competition ball. This is the same diameter as the Pro ball, but a bit bouncier. This is perfect for improving players or just cold courts. Seriously, if the ball isn’t bouncing around enough, give the single dot a try. I was actually playing with one the other day by mistake and didn’t notice until the third game. So it’s a subtle difference and can make the game more enjoyable by making the rallies longer.

There are actually a bunch of other Dunlop squash balls but I need to go to bed now, so I’ll come back later and update this post with the other ones.

GOOD NIGHT.

Update: here’s a YouTube video showing the double yellow dot and single yellow dot balls, plus a cameo from a Dunlop doubles squash ball.

 

Dunlop Intro Ball

OK here’s another — the Dunlop Intro Ball. This is larger and bouncier than a typical squash ball – 12% larger, to be precise. And 40% bouncier, to be precise (40% long hang time, to be REALLY PRECISE).

  • Hi,

    Maybe you can try the black knight tru bounce double yellow dot. The Dunlop obviusly is the best ball but this is good to be a real alternative and cheaper.

    In the winter I use the one yellow dot because is really cold here in Chile and is perfect to train with a teacher even you correct your movements.

    Regards

    • Thanks for the feedback Ricardo! I actually forgot that I’d posted about Black Knight squash balls before. I haven’t actually tried them out yet.
