Quick Kids Practice Ball by GammaThe Gamma Quick Kids Practice Ball is one solution to the never-ending "pickleball noise" debacle. This foam ball was developed by Gamma Sports, a big name in the tennis industry. While this ball was designed for teaching tennis to younger kids on a smaller court, it is also a fantastic substitute for pickleball players seeking a solution to the loud “ping” that is characteristic of pickleball. It is made of scratchy foam and has a two-tone color scheme, with red and yellow intersecting to allow players to notice and practice spin.
The Gamma Quick Kids Practice Ball is slightly larger than an average pickleball, measuring just about 3-1/4” in diameter. It weighs just slightly under 1 ounce, making it a comparable weight as well. Because it is made of foam, not a hard plastic, this ball has a much shorter bounce which makes it great for drills.
The Gamma Quick Kids Practice Ball is a great way to play indoors or at venues where noise is a factor.
Sold as single ball or 3-pack.
Great Pickleball training Aid

I'm a beginning pickleball player, and am having trouble putting the ball where I want it. I bought these kids practice foam balls to hit against the living room wall while watching TV in the evening. I figured that hitting against the wall would help my hand-to-eye- coordination. To date, my game has improved significantly, with far fewer errors due to my becoming more consistent on my returns. These balls are very light, soft, and don't mar a wall, no matter how many times you hit it against the wall! This close-up training is just what I needed!

Not an acceptable replacement for gamma soft pickle balls which I’ve been ordering for years. Any chance you will find a replacement for this product

Work great for practicing pickleball at home
Feb 1, 2023
Using regular balls was not practical at home because of how loud they were. These foam balls offer a similar experience but make basically no noise. They do bounce higher than standard balls and play slightly different, but for practice against a wall for instance they are perfect. 5/5 because they were exactly what I was looking for.
Good for shadow strokes but bad for touch

I love that this ball is quiet and won't break like normal balls. However, you will need to hit real pickleballs much harder for the same effect on your drives, volleys, and dinks. In other words, this ball helps me with my motions, but you're going to have to adjust as you step onto court. If you're okay with that, go for it!

A great way to practice pickleball shot control on a backboard or any smooth wall.

Just the right amount of bounce. The red and yellow help show the spin. Nice and quiet, too.

Just the thing for indoors. I hit this ball against the wall and work on my skills.
