What is the difference between an indoor and outdoor field hockey stick
By Customer Service on October 18, 2013

An indoor field hockey stick in thinner than an outdoor field hockey stick, is slightly more rounded at the bottom, and has a little bit shorter of a hook. Outdoor sticks are thicker, because you need to hit the ball harder for it to travel across the long grass as opposed to an indoor flat turf surface.
