Indoor & Outdoor Pickleballs - What's the Difference?

What are the differences between indoor and outdoor pickleballs? 

Indoor pickleballs are typically designed to have a smoother surface. They are made of a softer plastic material and have larger holes. This construction allows for slower flight and better control when playing indoors, where the wind is not a factor. Indoor pickleballs are often colored yellow.

On the other hand, outdoor pickleballs are designed to withstand outdoor conditions, including wind. They are made of a harder plastic material and have smaller holes. The smaller holes reduce the impact of wind, making them more stable during outdoor play. Outdoor pickleballs are commonly colored white or orange for better visibility against various backgrounds.

However, it is important to note that the specific characteristics of pickleballs can vary among manufacturers, so there may be slight differences in performance and durability between different brands of indoor and outdoor balls.
