Inline Hockey - Playing Surface

Playing Surface

Indoor inline hockey is played on any suitable non-slip surface. While converted roller rinks may use wooden floors, dedicated inline hockey facilities use Sport Court or similar surface, which allows maximum traction to inline hockey wheels whilst providing a smooth, unbroken gliding surface for the puck. The playing area should be surrounded by full boards similar to ice hockey with glass or fencing to a height of around 2m. Often, especially in European countries, the game is played in indoor sports halls, on wooden floors. Therefore, there will be no standardized boards but instead the perimeter of the playing surface will be brick walls. In such cases, the corners of the hall are rounded off with added curved boards.

Famous quotes containing the words playing and/or surface:

    Give me mine angle, we’ll to th’ river; there,
    My music playing far off, I will betray
    Tawny-finned fishes; my bended hook shall pierce
    Their slimy jaws; and as I draw them up,
    I’ll think them every one an Antony,
    And say, “Ah, ha! y’ are caught.”
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Night City was like a deranged experiment in Social Darwinism, designed by a bored researcher who kept one thumb permanently on the fast-forward button. Stop hustling and you sank without a trace, but move a little too swiftly and you’d break the fragile surface tension of the black market; either way, you were gone ... though heart or lungs or kidneys might survive in the service of some stranger with New Yen for the clinic tanks.
    William Gibson (b. 1948)
