Sand Hockey and Beach Hockey

Beach or Sand Hockey

The New York Times published images of Canadi an soldiers playing hockey in the sand during the Gulf War.  Some like to claim that as the beginning of beach or sand hockey. Not necessarily so.

The guys shown are not Canadian, but Tunisian. Sand hockey only became visible, thanks to the New York Times photo of the Canadians.


Come and experience one of the only Beach Field Hockey tournaments in the United Stated!
In the tradition of all of our other beach sport tournaments, Morey’s Piers is proud to offer you a chance to play Field Hockey in a new and exciting way. Teams will compete on the beaches of Wildwood, NJ and enjoy the waterparks during the day and the famous Wildwood boardwalk and amusements in the evening. Mark your calendars now.
