China Women’s National Field Hockey Team, champions in the making
Modern-day field hockey began in the middle of the ‘70s in China. The sport emerged in Beijing and in the Heilongjiang Province. Over the years, this field sport has not gained so much popularity in China as the hockey enthusiasts would like.

The Snow Lotuses’ tradition of hard-work and tenacity leads to success

Evolution of field hockey in China
China can be given partial credit for being an inventor of field hockey. Molidawa, a small city in Inner Mongolia, is considered home to field hockey. In ancient times, they used to play a game called Beikou, which was a crude version of modern day hockey. This region has produced many skilful hockey players for both men’s and women’s teams. De Jiaojiao from Molidawa and a member of the China Women’s National Field Hockey Team participated in the Olympics in London, for which their teams have historically brought international coaches to train them from countries like South Korea, Germany and Pakistan. Field hockey has been in existence since the middle ages and has gradually evolved to what it is today. It can be played on grass or synthetic field. Astro turf was first used in the Olympics in Montreal and since then has been considered the best due to its many advantages, like its smooth and fast-playing surface.
