I don't think so. You can go to the isbhf web site and check out the Swiss connection. The esential thing about ball hockey is that it is played with a ball and an ice hockey stick. Players run, not skate. You can use any smooth surface, but not ice. Rules vary depending on where you are. A gym set up would be different than an arena. Most arenas come with a cement floor, which is perfect for ball hockey. I am amazed that the game has not caught on in England, France or Spain. They have arenas, but probably don't know about the sport. It is perfect for anyone who likes ice hockey, but cannot ice skate to keep up with the others. In ball hockey all you do is run.
