Hockey
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.
