                        A bit of history.

40 years and more ago  we were asked by Chester Knobbs, Ian, Reg Guppy  and others, to make balls for ‘Racketball’,a NEW UK version of  American ‘Racquetball’, because balls available, mostly  considerably. There were no standards and there was continuing ‘debate’ as to what was required.


We resisted until  sold a blue ball, moved all ball production to the far east and  asked us to make their  ball whilst they organised supply in the Phillipines.

 The  Squash Association  had  been   given Racketball  to   Ian Wright, who earlier had asked us to develop a slower racketball ball, in black, besides the blue ball  we made for Dunlop. So we decided to sell  Racketball balls under  the  PRICE  brand,

At the same time  slowing down the  blue ball because Ian and other players suggested it, for the PRICE version . Both balls adopted as  ‘Official’ Balls.

They later asked for the development of an intermediate ball between the blue and black ball and which is now a tournament ball. The original  black ball still being used by some best players.

To distinguish the two black balls we named them  ‘Price single dot’ and  the ‘Price double dot’.

Development  continued for the Association  and  we now produce a WHITE
