Hockey as we know it today has similarities with the field hockey that was practiced in Egypt, Persia, and Greece since before the Christian era, and there are ancient Egyptian papyruses with drawings that resemble field hockey game. Hockey is also similar to ancient games such as hurling, Shinty, and the cheuca game of the Arauca Indians of Argentina.

Hockey is a sport that is practiced with different characteristics in accordance to the field or floor on which it is played receiving the name of ice hockey, roller hockey, and field hockey, from which the first two are part of the Winter Games competitions, although they are also played in special tracks prepared for these types of clashes.

Although the first Hockey clubs that appear in history are the Blackheath Football and Hockey Club in London during the year of 1861. In 1871 the Teddington Hockey Club was formed. The English Hockey Association was established in 1875 and the Hockey Association in 1886 establishing the rules of the hockey that are still in use nowadays.

The first international matches took place in 1890 and, like other games originated in the 19th century, hockey was introduced to the Olympic Games in 1908. By the year 1924, the International Hockey Federation was created, although its first tournament was held until 1971 for male teams and 1974 for female teams.

There was also a European Championship for men in 1970 and from then onwards this championship is held every four years. The female European championship for women did not take place until 1984; Hockey was included in the Pan American games held in Cali during 1971 with Argentina getting the gold medal.

Hockey is perhaps the sport with more variation to a same game and the sport from which many other sports have derived such as air hockey, ball hockey, unicycle hockey, bandy, box hockey, broomball, floorball, foot hockey or sock hockey, gym hockey, hurling and camogie, indoor field hockey, mini hockey, nok hockey, PowerHockey, ringette, rinkball, Rossall hockey, shinny, shinty, skater hockey, sledge hockey, spongee, street hockey, table hockey, and underwater hockey as the most common of them.

Regardless the style, the hockey sticks are J-shaped, with a curved hook in the end and flat surface in the playing side. The sticks are made of a composite of wood with either carbon fiber or glass fiber, although often include both of them to improve its resistance.
