WHY PLAY FIELD HOCKEY?

Nothing is more satisfying than whacking a small, hard ball, with a large, hard field hockey stick. But field hockey lets you dribble that ball, flick it, roll it, slide it around and in between people's legs, glide it, pass it, and more. Field hockey is a team sport that is becoming more popular every year. Give it a try, and you will surely become hooked!
