A penalty (short) corner is awarded for: * An accidental offence by a defender within the circle they are defending, which does not prevent the probable scoring of a goal; * A deliberate offence by a defender outside the circle they are defending but within the 23 metre area, against a player with possession of/opportunity to play the ball; * A deliberate offense by a defender within the circle they are defending, against a player who does not have possession of/opportunity to play the ball. * Deliberately playing the ball over the backline by a defender. A penalty (short) corner is reawarded when: * A player or players breaks the line early on a previous penalty (short) corner; * A penalty corner has not finished and a bully would otherwise have been awarded.

What is a penalty corner in field hockey?

A penalty corner is awarded for:an unintentional foul in the circle by a defending player which does not prevent the probable scoring of a goalan intentional offence inside the circle by a defender on a player who does not have the ball or the possibility of playing itan intentional offence by a defender inside their 23 metres area but outside the circle.or a defender deliberately playing the ball over the backline (there are varying definitions of "deliberate"; the rule specifically excludes a goalkeeper deflecting a shot at goal or an opportunity for a shot).When a penalty corner is awarded only five defending players, usually four defenders and the goalkeeper, are allowed to defend it; the remaining defenders must be beyond the centre-line. They must remain behind the goal/centre line until an attacker injects the ball back into play from a point on the backline at least 10 metres from the goal but within the circle. There is no limit to how many attackers in the team on the field can take part in a penalty corner. The corner is complete when a goal is scored, the ball goes out of play, another penalty corner or a penalty stroke is awarded or the ball travels either 5 metres from the circle or outside it more than once. A goal cannot be scored until the ball has left the circle from the initial injection.In the modern game, they are very good scoring opportunities, and hence are usually looked for by attackers while heavily disputed by defenders.
