hello, we are the essex blades HOCKEY club
Hockey is a team sport played between 2 teams of 11 players. The game is played on a rectangular pitch and involves players using sticks to hit a ball and score in opposing goals. The game consists of 2 halves lasting 35 minutes each half with 10 minute break in between. The only way to score is by being within an area around the goal called the D. Whoever scores the most goals at the end of the game is the winner.
