Anyone here play it?
yup, for several years now, Hockey is the reason im a right handed batsman, while left in everything else :')
enjoy it, but never really seriously tried and trained a lot to get really good, although some said I shouldve..enjoy cricket way more, and indoor cricket training is far more important to me then hockey training, hence I don't train much
i'm left/right defender/midfielder, last year I played as a striker a fair bit, scored 15 goals in a season, this year I started as defender, and now ive been playing left midfield a fair bit.
Yep, play as a inside left. Linking the attack and the defense

What stick do you guys use, I have the Mercian Great Black Oxide . It's as heavy as hell, but good.
my gem of a stick
Played pretty seriously back in school for the first XI. Since I've finished school, I missed one season through injury and played one (this year) for a club team. Love the game though I'm not all that good at it. I score a hell of a lot of goals (play mainly on the wing)but I don't really have the greatest stickwork.
And yeah, I don't understand the impression of hockey as a poof game. It's insanely dangerous, far more so than football or rugby (though you're probably more likely to get hurt in rugby, hockey injuries tend to be really serious - those sticks and balls are hard).

There's not many places I'd prefer less to be than running out of the goal box at a penalty corner. Surely you'd get smashed by the ball at times?
Any recorded deaths in hockey? Like, besides the odd heart attack from exertion.
When visiting the doctor once because of a hockey injury (someone confused my ankle with the ball and slammed his stick full on on it) she said that someone she knew had died from hockey as the stick made contact with just the wrong place on the temple area of the head.Originally Posted by vic_orthdox
The only normal sport that is more dangerous than hockey, off the top of my head is rugby.
I'd have gone for cricket over rugby. The potential for broken bones is surely much higher?Originally Posted by PhoenixFire
Nah. Union's very dangerous, with proper scrums (saw this thing on BBC 2 about some guy who broke his back when one collapsed once) and those funny ruck things where everyone either dives in or stamps on some bugger who's in there. Lots of potential for injury.Originally Posted by Matteh

Mhmm i guess. When we first did rugby in year 7 i was put as a prop, got my neck wrenched everytime it went down, which was a lot. Gradually worked my way back through the scrum to being a number 8, where i could just pull out and look down at everyone on the floor.Originally Posted by steds
Tragically I was born without a uterus, so could never play Hockey.
