Choosing a Field Hockey Ball

Selecting a Field Hockey Ball is more than just ordering a dozen! First, we must evaluate the playing surface. For our purposes, we will divide the fields into those made of the following surfaces: Natural Grass Water Based Turf Sand Based Turf Filled Turf The Filled Turf is the newest development in the industry, and presents conditions different from the other two artificial surfaces in that it slows down the speed of the ball. Second, we must evaluate the playing conditions of the day. Is the field dry or wet? Finally we must give consideration to the age and the level of play of the teams. You will notice that a Dimple Ball is always selected for wet surface conditions. The element of water - added either by nature or by man - produces a totally different surface. The result of this is hydroplaning or inconsistent ball speed. The dimples help to control the hydroplaning, producing a more consistent ball speed.
