Family fun playing playing road hockey on Hungerford Drive. The official version of road hockey is a young sport, but can be traced back to similar games played with a ball and stick. The first documented history of such a game, called hurling, dates back to the second millennium B.C. when it was played in Ireland. The word hockey derives from a similar game played by the Native Indians in North America, firstly observed in 1572.
