It's Time to Hockey!

Feeling patriotic and willing to give hockey a try? Hockey is the game of the nation. Though cricket has a wider fan base, hockey is always given its due attention. One can start playing the game by purchasing good training equipment for beginners at Decathlon.

Questions which help you decide

Firstly, the material of your hockey stick is of utmost importance. The right material can provide you with the proper grip – shorter sticks are easier to strike the ball with and hook heads are more natural for dribbling. Hockey sticks are made of wood, carbon fibre or aluminium. Kevlar, however, is the one that is mass produced. Secondly, for trainees, a hockey ball must be appropriately chosen before one can move onto professional hockey.

A wide range to choose from

Decathlon has a great range of hockey sticks in different colours and for both adults and kids. You can also browse for hockey stick covers and balls from a vast collection of hockey accessories.

Top features

Hockey stick material: Make sure you choose a wooden hockey stick with fibreglass reinforced into it. Not only is it authentic, but it also helps beginners get a good grip on the stick and ultimately adjust to any other kind of stick.

Choose a ball instead: Before moving to pucks or cork core hockey balls, choose a lighter ball made of polyurethane to facilitate faster movement.

Protective gear: The most important aspect to keep in mind is safety. Hockey requires you to use the most amount of safety gear - caged helmets to groyne protector pads.

Attractive accessories: Play hockey in style with the necessary gear which includes hockey stick bags and other accessories.
