₹ 99 Décathlon
I purchased this ball in March 2016 from Decathlon and shortly after taking it home we realized that this was not really spherical. (Check by keeping it on a flat surface). We did not return it immediately, because the deformity did not justify driving all the way back for this.
Unfortunately, last week(August) my son showed me the ball had deformed to such an extent that it resembled an egg.
Decathlong(Whitefield) were gracious enough to acknowledge the issue and replace it. However, when picking up the replacement piece, I noticed that almost all the balls in stock were slightly deformed. So this appears to be a manufacturing defect.
So very unlike any of the other excellent products carried by Decathlon. I hope Decathlon would withdraw this poor quality product from its stores.
Store was acknowledged and replace the piece
Ball does not retain spherical shape.
Thanks for your feedback.
I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused to you. Usually, such issues happen when the ball is over inflated the first time (which may have happened at the store). Having said that, we have communicated the issue to our Production team and the future stock will be better in terms of quality.

A good value ball which is a perfect size and weight for introducing toddlers to football.
Light and tough
this ball is lovely for smaller children soft enough for indoor or outdoor play but not to light it blows away and easy to see
soft and a nice size
Need to state more clearly the size of the ball - it's tiny!
Not clear what the size of the ball was
Thank you for your feedback. The product does state that it is a size 1 ball but I will look to update this online so it is more clear.
