«Evolution of Table Hockey in Russia»

By Mariia Maksimova / October 13, 2019 / 0 Comments

A wonderful short story about the history of table hockey in Russia that quickly carries the reader from 1957 to today. The role of Soviet Union’s Bandy (field hockey) team and Yury Gagarin, the world’s first cosmonaut, played in giving rise to the popularity of table hockey.
