Bandy is a sport in which ice skaters use sticks and a ball to score goals. This is a team winter sport considered a form of hockey with similarities to football, ice hockey and field hockey. It is played in halves of 45 minutes each with eleven players on each team on a field about the same size as a soccer pitch. The field is ice but, like field hockey, players use bowed sticks and a small ball. Rink bandy is similar but is played on a field the size of an ice hockey rink and with fewer people.
The first bandy club was formed in the Fens of England in 1813 - the fens regularly froze over, giving rise to a lively culture of distance skating and bandy. In 1853 a similar game was played at Windsor Castle with Prince Albert in goal and one of England's earliest soccer clubs was founded in 1865 as Nottingham Forest Football and Bandy Club. These days the game is particularly popular in the Nordic countries and Russia.
