    I've recently moved to Taiwan from the UK and have been struggling to find any field hockey teams out here. It's a bit weird, because they have an international team so there must be some clubs somewhere,but I've been unable to find anything. Basically, does anyone know of any clubs, I'm missing my hockey at the moment.

    Thanks for the advice, I ended up getting in touch with some people via the hockey Asia website. You were right though, there's not a lot of players, and no real club set up to speak of, just a few enthusiastic players. There's also only one AstroTurf in the country and at the moment the local government where it is are trying to dismantle it. Still, had a good game of 7 a side and they all play to a pretty good standard!

    Hey Wai. I was wondering, do you guys still go out to play hockey on Sundays? I live in Taoyuan and I've been dying to get back into playing hockey again.

    Hi, I'll be in taipei from September 2013 to January 2014 and would like to play fieldhockey too, maybe we can try to set up a new group Vivian? Or join these guys if they are still playing (last post showing that they were still playing is nearly 3 years ago).
