Key Information


Hockey is a team sport where two teams of 11 players each play on a grass or turf field with a small, hard ball. The objective is to score goals by hitting the ball into the opposing team’s goal using a stick with a curved end. The University of St Andrews also has an Ice Hockey team which has the same objective as field hockey, yet the players are skating on ice.
