Whether you're playing for fun with friends and family or looking to take your skills to the next level, at Walmart you'll find a great selection of footballs from brands like Wilson so you can get the most out of your time on the field. Here a few things to look out for so you can find the right one for you.

Get a good grip

Like similar sports that require a heavy amount of handling such as basketball or baseball, having a good ball is essential. One of the key signs of a good football is its grip: the more robust the grip, the easier it will be to catch, pass and throw during games. Depending on how you often you play, you may also want to check for fabric construction, to see how the football will fare in certain conditions. For example, footballs made for outdoor use will be able to withstand harsh weather conditions better than a football made only for indoor use. Walmart also offers a great selection of indoor arena footballs, too, so that no matter where you are, your football is never out of place.

Pick the right size

While anyone can pick up a ball and start playing football, it's important that you get the right size. If you have kids under 9, you want to pick up a ball that is better suited for their small hands. Foam and rubber balls can also help with grip, since they're squishy. For 12-year olds and above, go with a larger ball. Buying the right football size is important because it will determine how easy or difficult it will be to handle the football when playing.
