About

One of the major drawbacks of field hockey is that you need to be on a turf to practice your skills. We have now developed a game that can enhance your 3D skills, aerial control and volleying ability that can be set up and enjoyed anywhere. 

World-class international athletes are amazing at playing the ball in the air and we want to enable players at all levels to practice their hand-eye coordination in the air. We have been product testing Hockey Smash with players of all abilities and has proven extremely popular by international athletes to young juniors. 

Hockey Smash is easy to transport and very quick to assemble. It only takes a few minutes to set up and you are ready to go! 

Included with the game, comes 3 balls (2 smaller and 1 bigger) and a pump. The balls are inflatable making it safe and easy to play anywhere. Also included is a Y1 draw string bag for carrying the game. 

Different ways to play Hockey Smash: 

1 v 1 : You get one touch to control the ball and one to smash the ball against the net. The aim is for you to smash the ball past your opponent so they cannot return the shot.  First to 15 points wins. 

2 v 2: Three touches between the pair (you cannot take a touch to control the ball) This is the most advanced version of the game and is the most competitive! First to 15 points wins.  

Rally mode: If you have 3 or more players you can have a very fun rally. One touch to control the ball and then one touch to either smash it against the net or pass the ball. This is good when you are getting used to the game and working on your hand-eye coordination.  

Before creating Hockey Smash, we product tested other popular non-hockey games that are currently available. We found that the existing games on the market were not the appropriate size and therefore were not great for playing hockey. We have created a game with a much bigger surface area making it the optimum size for hockey rallies.

We have decided to run this Kickstarter campaign to really see how much demand there is from the hockey community for Hockey Smash. Back the campaign and receive your game in December 2019 ahead of Christmas. We believe we have created the ultimate hockey Christmas present. 

Risks and challenges

We have received and iterated many samples from our manufacturing partners and we believe we have done our upmost to alleviate risks involved before mass producing Hockey Smash. However, as this campaign is being used to create our first full run with the factory there is always a risk the finished product may be slightly different to the samples. Again, working with overseas manufacturers there could be delays on receiving the game. We are very confident in our manufacturers, however unforeseen delays could occur.
