What Size Hurley?
So what size hurley for me or my child?
A question that we get asked a lot by parents when buying a hurley is what size hurley should I choose. The following image by the Camogie Association will certainly help.
A few things to remember:
- Get your child to stand relaxed with their hand by their sides
- The distance from the ground to their wrists is the correct hurley size
- The child should be able to hold the hurley at the top and the hurley should be just touching the ground
- Always go too small rather than too big, if a child is between sizes you should go for the smaller size
Based on our experience with the average height of a player the following are sizes that you should be looking at (these are only approximate and come in handy when buying a hurley as a present and are not sure of the players size)
|Hurley Size||Average Player Age|
|18 inch hurley||1-2 Years Old|
|20 inch hurley||2-3 Years Old|
|22 inch hurley||3-4 Years Old|
|24 inch hurley||4-5 Years Old|
|26 inch hurley||5-8 Years Old|
|28 inch hurley||8-10 Years Old|
|30 inch hurley||10-12 Years Old|
|32 inch hurley||12-16 Years Old|
