My local store has sold out of the right hand version of the hockey stick I was looking at so I was browsing around the web looking at hockey sticks and came across unihoc. I’d not heard of it before, does anyone know about it?
Also does anyone know about a ‘Base uni ’ by BaseBikes? Something else I stumbled on, strange how I gravitated towards a unicycle while looking for a hockey stick.
The unihoc game you found is played in youth clubs and schools and is a game of little skill and much violence. Most groups don’t get the all the goals and extras, a set of sticks in 2 colours and a ball or puck is all that is required - goals are nomally tables turned on there side.
The sticks do take a suprising amount of abuse before breaking but they are to short to be used from a unicycle.
I guess that the uni part of the name stands for universal as it is a game which can be played by most people and the rules are limited - normally made up by the youth group leader on the spot !! The rules are there to limit the violence and bloodloss.

I used to play it at school. Great fun, it was about the best thing we
ever did in PE. The sticks would be unsuitable for adult unicycle
hockey, though. They’re far too short to use two-handed, which means
that you can’t comply with the rules about holding the stick.
