- The player stands nice and relaxed with their hands down by their sides.
- The distance from the ground to their wrist is the correct length.
- The player should be able to hold the hurley at the top and the hurley should be just touching the ground.
If it is not possible to perform this test e.g. you are buying a present for someone a good rule of thumb is half their height.
If a player is between sizes it is still better to have the hurley too small rather than too big.
