Hurling is a 3000-year-old Irish stick and ball sport played with 2 teams with 15 players each played in two 35 minute halves (or 30 minute at club level).
Hurling is played using a wooden or synthetic 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.
