Hurling is an Irish sport that combines the skills of field hockey, lacrosse, and baseball. It is played using a wooden stick, called a hurl or a hurley, and a leather ball that is similar to a baseball, called a sliotar, in an exciting and fast-paced field game.
What Is Hurling
Hurling is a 3000-year-old Irish game and is the fastest field game in the world. It’s made up of 3 simple elements: a hurl, a leather ball (called a sliotar), and a player.
The game is made up of 2 teams with 15 players each and the objective of the game is to get this ball into a net or above a crossbar.
There are 2 ways to get the ball from the ground into your hand. There’s the jab lift and there’s the roll lift.
