The modern game of field hockey (which is commonly played on an artificial turf) originated in England.
If you mean turf hockey then yes it is in the 2008 Olympics
I personally play field hockey on grass but turf is good too overall i say it is better to be played on grass
it depends what type of hockey grass astro turf indoor ice
Shinpads, mouthguards and of course stick.
water based astro turf but it gets called smurf turf at London 2012 due to the colour of it
Depending on the type of field you play on, soccer or softball shoes/boots (for grass) or turf shoes (for artificial turf).
You should wear cleats to play field hockey if you are playing on a grass field. If you are playing indoors you should wear sneakers. If you are on artificial turf you should wear turf shoes and if you don't have turf shoes you should wear sneakers. But sneakers wouldn't be a good idea because you slide EVERYWHERE.
Field Hockey, at the higher levels is normally played on a turf field. High schools normally will play on grass.
The standard width of a hockey turf is 55.00m (fifty-five point zero zero metres), including the width of the backlines which they end at.
