Happy Nation 2013

The United Nations just released the world's happiest people list.

We take the liberty to straight of the bat relate this list to local Floorball penetration..

1. Danmark                 Solid Floorball
2. Norge                      Solid Floorball
3. Schweiz                   Dominant Floorball
4. Nederländerna        Emerging Floorball
5. Sverige                   Dominant Floorball
6. Kanada                   Emerging Floorball
7. Finland                    Dominant Floorball
8. Ă–sterrike                 Emerging Floorball
9. Island                      Emerging Floorball
10. Australien             Emerging Floorball

Conclusions; 3 out 4 most developed Floorball countries in the world to be found among the top 10 happiest people in the world. Not one country on the list among the worlds happiest top ten rated to have minor or zero Floorball development.

NB, Floorball rating is crude estimations using Zero, Minor, Emerging, Solid to Dominant. Zero means no Activity, Minor means, we know something is going on but we do not hear too much, Emerging has a Federation in place and tries to build the sport, Solid means that Floorball is a comparable activity to many other sports. Dominant - is only awarded to the top 4 Floorball nations in the world.

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!
