In our exclusive series on women’s sports history Chris Stafford narrates A History of Hockey

A History of Hockey, written by Penny Hopkins and narrated by Chris Stafford, tells the story of the women’s game, which began in its most basic form in ancient times and dates back to some of the earliest civilizations. We hear how the game has development across continents from grassroots to international level, and how its popularity has grown through regional championships to Champions Trophy and the Olympic Games, with the next World Cup taking place in London in 2018. The evolution of equipment from stick to ball, player’s kit to pitches is a fascinating sidebar to help understand how technology and techniques have advanced the game.
