HOCKEY IN GREECE
There are some paintings on ceramic pots that prove that there was played a game with stick and ball around 500 years bc. We do not know the rules and even if it was a team play.
Between 1925 and 1930 there was played hockey in the Athens tennis club, most players being foreigners working or stationed in Athens. Hockey started being played regularly since 1949, in a boarding school namely “ National School of Anavryta” in Kifisia.
Up to 1976, there was played hockey every afternoon. The only opponents were teams of the H.M.S. British Navy, visiting Piraeus.
The first ever International game was played against the National team of Czechoslovakia in 1990. The Hellenic Hockey Federation was established in 1996 with 6 founding clubs.
In 1997 the H.H.F. organized its first tournament, the “ 1st Southeastern European Tournament” with the participation of 7 countries included Grece.
