Hockey Directory

Hockey is one of the oldest and most storied professional sports played around the world. Hockey-like games involving sticks and balls have been played for thousands of years by people such as the Egyptians, the Greeks, the Romans, the Irish, the Scots and the Indians of South America. Historical records show that a crude form of hockey was played in Egypt 4,000 years ago and in Ethiopia around 1,000 BC. Various museums offer evidence that a form of the game was played by Romans and Greeks, and by the Aztec Indians of South America several centuries before Columbus landed in the New World. Hockey is a game in which two opposing teams use sticks to move a small object into the opposing goal. The two major types of the sport are field hockey and ice hockey. Field hockey is played on an open area, traditionally grass but more modernly an artificial surface, and using a ball. Ice hockey is played on an enclosed ice surface, traditionally an iced-over lake or pond but more modernly an artificial rink, and using a small rubber disc called a puck. There are different forms of hockey to include to the list they are, Air hockey, Beach hockey, Ball hockey, Box hockey, Unicycle hockey, Foot hockey, Spongee, Rossall hockey, Shinny is an informal version of ice hockey, table hockey is played indoors with a table-top game, and underwater hockey is played on the bottom of a swimming pool.
