Field Hockey History
Field Hockey is a sport with a rich history. This game was played in English public schools during the 19th Century and just like with any other sport, its popularity has increased with time. During this time, it was played on a much larger field and players used a cube of black rubber.
The modern game has been developed because members of a club were looking for a form of winter exercise but at the same time were not fans of football. The first hockey association was put together in 1886 but unfortunately the clubs could not come to an agreement on the rules. Therefore, the clubs used to play with their own rules.
It didn’t take that long for field hockey to reach all of the English territories. It first appeared in the Olympics back in 1908 which took place in London and there was a total of 3 teams involved at the time – England, Scotland and Ireland.
Today, it is played on a synthetic turf and the sticks used by the players are made from fibreglass, carbon fibre and Kevlar instead of the traditional wood. Even the ball has changed from a cricket leather type ball to a hard-plastic ball.
