Hockey, also called Field Hockey in some parts of the world, is a stick and ball game with origins dating back thousands of years. It was traditionally played on grass but more often these days hockey is played on synthetic surfaces, especially at the top levels. The London Youth Games hosts multiple hockey competitions in their event season including a Open female and male competition, In2Hockey and Quicksticks Hockey competition.


At the London 2012 Olympics, hockey was the 3rd most spectated sport
