GAA Gloves Size Guide
Improve your grip and play in all weather conditions with a pair of gaelic gloves. Find the perfect fit at home with our GAA gloves size guide. Your gloves should be snug fitting with a small space at the top of the fingertips to allow the seams to react when you catch a ball.
To find the correct size of gaelic gloves, you should measure both the length and width of your hand as shown in the video below. If your measurements fall between sizes, we recommend sizing up.
How to measure your glove size:
- Use a tape measure to measure the length of your hand from the base of your palm to the top of your middle finger.
- Measure the width of your hand by placing the tape measure across the widest part of your palm from left to right.
- The strap size will give you an indication of how far down the strap will sit on your wrist.
- Take note of these measurements and select the most appropriate size of GAA gloves from the size guide below.
Hurl Size Guide
Selecting the optimum size of hurling stick can make all the difference to your game, allowing control over the sliotar and a more natural swing. Follow our hurl size guide below to find the correct hurl size for you. If you are between sizes, we recommend sizing down. It is better to have a hurley slightly shorter than slightly too long to make it easier to swing.
How to measure a hurling stick:
- Stand up straight with your hands relaxed by your sides.
- Measure the distance from the ground to the beginning of the wrist.
- Take note of the measurement. Hurls are available in 2 inch increments up to 36".
- The V position between your finger and thumb should sit as close as possible to the neck of the hurl and the hurley should be on the ground.
