Hockey is a term used to denote various types of both summer and winter team sports which originated on either an outdoor field, sheet of ice, or dry floor such as in a gymnasium.
There are many types of hockey. Some games make the use of skates, either wheeled, or bladed while others do not. In order to help make the distinction between these various games, the word “hockey” is often preceded by another word i.e. “field hockey”, “ice hockey”, “roller hockey”, “rink hockey”, or “floor hockey”.
The history of hockey in India dates back to the rule of British regiments in India. Calcutta was the first city to organise a hockey club in 1885-86, followed by Bombay and Punjab. In 1908, the Bengal Hockey Association became India’s first hockey association.
