The French word "Hoquet" meant Shepherd's crook and it is believed that the game was simply named by altering the spelling of the French word. Hockey was brought to India by the British. The rules were formed in 1833 by the London Wimbledon Club. The Hockey Association formed in 1886. In 1928 the first Indian team participated in Olympics and won. Subsequently India has won eight Gold Medals and winners of World Cup in 1975.
