News on wheels from Holland


After 38 years of Dutch Wheelchairhockey, the KNHB will set up a trial Floorball Hockey League.

The Dutch Wheelchairhockey league started in 1974. Today the league has 7 different divisions and is the biggest competition in Europe (and most likely... Maybe in the world?). But the Dutch League doesn't have the same rules as the European Wheelchairfloorball tournaments, so the KNHB (The Dutch Hockey Bond - this is what is called field hockey in the US) wants to start a Dutch trial Wheelchair Floorball League. 

The wheelchairhockey competition will remain. The first day of the new trial-league will take place on the 30th of December this year.

Cool huh

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
