Hockey is a game of two teams; each has 11 players, 10 field players, and one goalkeeper.
Hockey needs a stick as a bat in order the ball to be getting in into the opposing goal.
Men's hockey began to be competed in the III Asian Games Tokyo 1958, while the women's hockey displayed since the IX Asian Games New Delhi 1982, South Korea, India, Pakistan, and China are the main pillar of hockey in Asia.
Hockey is a sport where two teams compete by trying to manoeuvre a ball, or a hard, round, rubber or heavy plastic disc called a puck, into the opponent's net or goal, using a hockey stick.
Modern field hockey sticks are J-shaped and constructed of a composite of wood, glass fibre or carbon fibre (sometimes both) and have a curved hook at the playing end, a flat surface on the playing side and curved surface on the rear side.
Field hockey is played on gravel, natural grass, sand-based or water-based artificial turf, with a small, hard ball.
In most countries, the game is played between single-sex sides, although they can be mixed-gender.
Hockey was incorporated into the Asian Games in 1958 and beach hockey was incorporated into the Asian Beach Games in 2008.
