What does a hockey field look like and what types of fields do you have?
The total dimensions of the hockey field are 91.4 by 55 metres.
- Natural grass
- Artificial turf (sand infilled)
- Water field
- Semi-water pitch (intermediate form of water and artificial grass pitch)
In the winter period indoor hockey is played. Here, beams are used to mark out the field. Furthermore, an indoor hockey field differs in space from a normal hockey field. The field is more limited in size and is not bounded on the long sides by sidelines but side beams. Where on the field players sometimes have to keep a distance of five metres, for example when the opponent takes a free ball, this is three metres when indoors. 23-metre lines do not exist in the hall. So the rules are very different from normal field hockey.
