Know the sport

The first thing you need to do is know the sport you are playing. Is the sport you are playing outdoors or indoors? What kind of surface will you be playing on (e.g., grass, turf, concrete, wood floor, etc.) Are you going to need a ball that is light weight and easy to kick or run with like in football? Or do you need a heavier ball for your game? There are so many brands and so many different kinds of balls out there that a few things to consider is what kind of ball you need for the game you are playing.

Know your skill level

Next thing, once you know the sport and surface type, you can go look at brands and different models. Many newer people in the sport may be looking for a ball that is lighter in weight. Something easy to kick, throw or run with as it will help them develop good fundamental skills for the sport they are learning. However people who have been playing awhile and want a ball that may last longer or simply be more accurate might be looking at weighted balls as well as ones made of different materials such as leather, rubber, and plastic. After knowing what sport you are playing, what surface you will be playing on and your skill level. You can then go look at different kinds of balls available to see which one is right for you.
