AS the weather closes in, let’s take indoor hockey more seriously and press for its inclusion in the Winter Olympics. It’s fast, skilful and everything you learn indoors can be transferred to the artificial pitches we play on outside.
It is fantastic for teaching basic skills, promotes great footwork and there are always plenty of goals.
It also has one major advantage over the outdoor game at this time of year – it’s played in the warm! GARRY BARKER
