When did Field Hockey originate?
Field Hockey was invented in 1895 with the establishment
of the first All England Women’s Field Hockey Association. In 1901, an English woman named Constance Appleby introduced
the game to women in the United States while a summer student at Harvard. Appleby went on to teach the game at women’s
colleges throughout the Northeast. It was not until 1928 that men began playing the game in the United States.
