Specialised definition of the noun bandy

Glossary of sports / hockey

a sport played on ice with sticks, similar to ice hockey but with rules close to those of football (2006. Dictionary of Sport and Exercise Science. A&C Black Publishers Ltd)

ball game played on ice originating in England (documentary evidence from the 11th century) and mainly played in Scandinavia and Russia today. World championships have been held since 1957. Bandy is played in two variants: 1. on a playing field with dimensions of 90-105 x 50-70 m by two teams of 11 players each; 2. as rink bandy on a regular ice-hockey court with two teams of 6 players each. In both cases up to three substitutes per team are permitted. The players skating on ice-skates attempt to hit the ball (diameter 6 cm, 58-62 g) with raised field hockey sticks into the opponent's goal (width 3.50 m, height 2.10 m) as often as possible. Playing time is 2 x 45 min. The rules are stricter than those of ice-hockey; e.g. leg and knee tackling are prohibited. Offside rules and team positions correspond roughly to those of soccer. A rule violation within the penalty zone (semicircle with a radius of 17 m around the center of the goal line) is penalized with a penalty taken from a distance of 12 m from the goal; if the violation occurred outside the penalty zone a free hit is taken. (Herbert Haag & Gerald Haag. 2003. Dictionary. Sport, Physical Education, Sport Science. Kiel, Institut für Sport und Sportwissenschaften)
