    Indoor balls

    Hi guys,

    Today my team started indoor practice but after our session we noticed that there were several yellow marks. We use yellow indoor balls (manufactured by Surridge). As the indoor facilities are not ours, I'm looking into purchasing new indoor balls that don't leave marks.

    Every suggestion, idea, help is more then welcome.

    Cheers.

    We were banned from our multi purpose hall because of this, tried all kinds of cricket balls but all of them left marks.

    The good thing is that with some water and old clots the marks easily disappear.
    But still, we paid good money for so called balls that wouldn't leave marks.

    If somebody wants to give more input, please do.
    Cheers

    At the end of last years in door we just covered the floor with mats, so there were no new marks appearing.
    This year our club merged with another club so we're using a different facility, as I didn't move a long I have no clue on how they prevent those marks.
