The family sport

A field hockey-like game was first played in Greece around 300 B.C., where players hit a ball with horn ‘sticks’. Over the centuries, similar games were played worldwide and it became known as ‘the game played with sticks’. The word ‘hockey’ itself originates from the English word ‘hook’.

Modern hockey found its way through English public schools in the early 19th century, where it was played on natural grass. The striking circle was introduced and the rubber cube was replaced by a ball. Since the early 70s, synthetic hockey turf changed the game drastically because of the increasing speed of the ball. Over the last decades, hockey evolved more and more as the sport was played and enjoyed by all generations and the entire family. Nowadays, Edel Grass hockey systems serve the need of professional and amateur hockey players all around the world.
