A bandy ball is a rubber ball used for playing bandy.

The core of the ball is made of cork and this is surrounded by rubber or rubber-like plastic.

The ball should be manufactured in a diameter of 62.4 mm or 63.8 mm (the latter is called "Russian ball") and the colour was originally red, later orange or cerise. According to the Bandy Playing Rules set up by the Federation of International Bandy, any of these is allowed, but all balls used in one game must be of the same colour and type.

Bandy balls are manufactured by companies such as Jofa, Kosa, and Reebok.

The same type of ball is used in rink bandy while a similar ball but blue in its colour is used in rinkball.
