Bandy and Ball Hockey

Bandy is one of Russia’s National Sports, where it is known as Hockey with a Ball as opposed to Hockey with a Puck (Ice Hockey).

It is played on Ice with a ball rather than a puck.

Versions of the sport include Innebandy (also known as Floorball in Europe or Ball Hockey in North America) where runners are used on a hard floor rather than blades or roller skates.

Ball Hockey

Ball Hockey is a version of Ice Hockey played on a hard floor with a ball rather than a puck, and with runners rather than skates. It is very similar to Innebandy (Russia) and Floorball (Europe), with the three sports being very much the one sport with minor Continental variations.
