How are hockey balls made?

A hockey ball is made of solid or hollow plastic. Elite level balls have a cork or rubber core. Depending on the composition of the plastic and the core, a ball will have a different feeling of hardness and different levels of bounce. The surface of the ball is either smooth or dimpled.

Which ball for which pitch?

A smooth ball is suited to sandy pitches. A dimpled ball is suited to wet turf, since it provides better traction on the surface and stick in a damp environment.

Training or match ball?

Compared to training balls, match balls are higher-performance when it comes to feel, trajectory, and speed.
