Provincial Indoor Hurling Rules

  • All games are 9v9, but if a team is only able to play 7v7 then match them.  Or if agreeable play 8v8, but no more than 9v9 as it’s too clustered.
  • The ball will be live at all times unless there is a score, no line balls and no wide ball
  • Only Goals count
  • Cannot score direct from Puc Outs
  • All games are 7 minutes straight (depending on Numbers and Time)
  • All games use the Quick/ Smart Touch Sliotar
  • Full Hurling Rules, except all frees conceded in your defensive end of the pitch result in a 20m penalty (1v1) against the fouling team (To stop lazy, cynical fouling), Note the defending Goalie must stay on line for the penalties
  • No Managers or subs allowed in the playing area during or before games, only players starting
  • No warm ups on the pitch, games must start on time, so please sort your team out before the previous game is finished.
  • If players behaviour is not good, they must be replaced by another player or team will have to play with a player less.
  • If Teams behaviour is not good, they will forfeit all there remaining games.
