  • Floorball

1 – 5 August 2022

Malaysia is a tropical country, and it is truly impossible to get into ice hockey.

However, the closest sport to this would be Floorball! While introduced in Penang in November 2002, it has become quite the sport played in Penang.

Floorball is such an interesting sport, also known as floor hockey. It trains on speed and skill rather than strength.
