«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. When Russia first entered international tournaments, subsequent achievements, and mention of inventors, cartoonists, fiction writers — all contributed to the rise and popularity of table hockey in Russia today.

Mariia, also hand-picked from the WTHA’s Shop, autographed hockey jerseys from famous Russian ice hockey players that you can buy!
