Standard FIH weight and diameter
According to the FIH rules, field hockey balls must have a diameter between 71.3 and 74.8 mm and a weight between 156 g and 163 g. For kids who are just starting hockey, you can get "mini" balls which are standard-sized but lighter. There are also "street" balls, which are smaller and lighter and designed for playing in the garden/road/etc.
What's on the inside of your hockey ball?
A hockey ball is made of solid or hollow plastic. Elite level balls have a cork or rubber core. Depending on the composition of the plastic and the core, a ball will have a different feeling of hardness and different levels of bounce. The surface of the ball is either smooth or dimpled.
Which ball for which pitch?
A smooth ball is suited to sand-based pitches. A dimpled ball is suited to wet turf because it will provide better traction on the surface and stick in a damp environment.
Training or match ball?
Compared with training balls, match balls have better feel, trajectory and speed.
