Sports Balls

Sports balls come in many shapes and sizes. Some of the smallest are the squash and table tennis balls, about 40mm (1.6 inches) wide. At the other end of the scale, the largest is the basketball, about 240mm (9.4 inches) wide. The basketball is not the heaviest though, as the shot put and the bowling ball can be 7.26kg (16lb).
