Best Answer

A bully occurs in Field Hockey when two players become tied up, and one cannot gain possession of the ball. After the referee calls for a bully to be performed, the two players stand facing each other, with the heads of their sticks placed on the ground. The ref then blows the whistle, and the players clap their sticks together once, and attempt to gainpossession of the ball.

*A bully occurs most often in the sport of indoor field hockey.
