100 Words Essay On Hockey In English

Hockey is an outdoor game played between two teams both having 11 players each. Hockey was originally called shinty. It is India and Canada’s national game.  The word hockey has been attributed to the French word hoquet (shepherd’s stick). It is so because, in the game hockey, the players use hooked sticks with which the players try to drive a small hard ball toward goals at opposite ends of a field.

The true origins of the game hockey are unknown, or rather have many different points of view from varied scholars as they did their study and research towards it, however, Canada gets credit for modernizing and popularising, the game we know today.
