Field Hockey is played with wooden sticks and a hard ball. The sticks are used to dribble, pass or shoot the ball down the field to the opposing teams goal line. Goal is worth one point and the team who scores the most goals in the allotted time wins the game. Regulation hockey sticks can be used but it's more fun and a tad safer with good old sticks.
Better for what? A stick's weight is really a personal preference, as lighter ones are more suitable for dribbling and other skills where a heavier stick is more useful for hitting.

I use TK field hockey sticks. My indoor is a TK Classic 2.2, and I really like it. For outdoor sticks, I would suggest a Grays, a Kookaburra, or a TK. Grays are great all-around sticks, Kookaburras are great looking and good drivers, and TKs are great offensive sticks. Hope this helps! :)

Hockey refers to a family of sports, all of which involve two teams playing each other, using sticks to propel a ball or puck into the opponent's goal. Field hockey is one of those sports, in which teams of 11 play on a turf with J shaped sticks, a small hard ball around 73mm (2.9in) in diameter.
