Basketball sizes vary by age, gender, and level of play. The official size of the basketball used by the NBA is 29.5 inches (size 7) in circumference. That's the same size used throughout men's college and high school basketball leagues. The WNBA uses a slightly smaller ball, measuring 28.5 (size 6) inches in circumference.
For international play, specifically FIBA, the basketball used is what's called a Molten GL7 for men and Molten GL6 for women. These basketballs typically feature two different colours and are slightly bigger, with a 30.7-inch circumference for the men's ball and a 29-inch circumference for the women's.
Boys in middle school (or ages 12-14), use a 28.5-inch ball (size 6), as do all women and girls ages 12 and up. For anyone, male or female, between the ages of nine and 11, a ball size of 27.5 (size 5) inches in circumference is recommended and is the most commonly sized ball used in youth basketball leagues.
Boys and girls between the ages of 4 and 8 use a basketball between the sizes of 22 inches and 24.5 inches in circumference, depending on the individual's hand size, which can be determined by a coach or parent by measuring from the bottom of the individual's palm to the tip of his or her middle finger.
An NBA basketball must be inflated to a pressure of 7.5 to 8.5 PSI. The WNBA uses the same pressure regulations.
In the NCAA, inflation requirements are given in weight, with the men's ball having a maximum weight of 22 ounces and the women's ball having a maximum weight of 20 ounces. In FIBA play, the official rules state that the ball "be inflated to an air pressure such that, when it is dropped onto the playing floor from a height of approximately 1,800 mm measured from the bottom of the ball, it will rebound to a height of between 1,200 mm and 1,400 mm, measured to the top of the ball."

5 out of 5 Amazing quality ball for Club
Newitts Verified Purchase (8 Oct 2017)
Purchased a number of GG7X’s for my local club. They have been nothing but brilliant. The majority of the local basketball league we play in use them, so it helps with consistency when practicing and playing competitively.
No doubt we will be buying more in the near future as these have a positive impact on our club and helping it grow.

Excellent basketball with good grip and feel. Very good value. Bought 5 of these as our club math and practice balls. Highly recommended newitts. Great service.
5 out of 5 Best Basketball You Will Ever Use
Fantastic basketball, better than any other brand in my opinion. Has extremely good tacky grip, cushioning feels amazing, weighted perfectly and is also very durable. Worth every penny and Newitts sell this at an extremely good price!! Just don't ever use outside!!
5 out of 5 Great ball and price
Newitts Verified Purchase (1 Sep 2016)
This is by far the best ball we train with and use for our matches. Newitts were by far the cheapest I could source this ball, and with free delivery which was a bonus. They arrived promptly and as described. I would definitely recommend the GGX ball and Newitts (and already have to fellow players).
5 out of 5 Perfect .. Buy it!
Newitts Verified Purchase (20 Jun 2016)
I love this ball!
I wanted an official game ball and after having recently starting balling again had opportunity to play with this and the leading Spalding ball.
The Molten feels much more superior, the grip is perfect and the feel and balance is perfect. I did initially want the GLX7 as I wanted a leather ball but at this price I couldn't turn down the GG7X ... plus I struggle to see how the GL7X could be any better than this,
Great price and service

Newitts Verified Purchase (30 Dec 2015)
Great price and guaranteed your not getting a fake ball from newitts. This ball is so much better then the GG, it feels better has more grip and although the same weight as the GG this ball feels lighter in the hand, the GGX will be the ball to have for a long time to come .
