Beach Hockey Beach Hockey is a new, trendy and modern way of hockey. Which perfectly fits in the popularity of Beach sports in general. Beach Hockey Nederland (Europe) is founder of the Beach Hockey tours as they are played now, this in close cooperation with the Dutch Hockey Federation. Starting with a simple tournament in Scheveningen leading to a Dutch Beach Hockey Tour and Beach Hockey events with more than 3000 participants each year. Many counties as Belgium, Germany and France followed and are organising Beach Hockey tournaments now. More countries are planning Beach Hockey Events next year. Beach Hockey is growing each year in quantity and quality. Beach Hockey Europe would like to be (and is already): - the international information centre for all incoming questions and requests regarding Beach Hockey - coordinator of National Beach Hockey Federations, clubs and organisations. - developer of rules and regulations of the game, the safety protocols and standardisation (field size, materials, etc) This of course in dialogue with players, organisations, associations. We think that Beach Hockey will be a new sport itself and besides that it will promote and support the sport hockey in general. Beach Hockey is easy to play and also accessible for non hockey players. Therefore we would like to cooperate with the European Hockey Federation.
