"Sir Patrick and the rest of the Headless Hunt had just started a game of Head Hockey and the crowd were turning to watch. Nearly Headless Nick tried in vain to recapture his audience, but gave up as Sir Patrick's head went sailing past him to loud cheers."

Head Hockey is a game played by the Headless Hunt. Sir Patrick Delaney-Podmore and the rest of the Hunt started a match of Head Hockey during Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington's five-hundredth Deathday Party, rudely interrupting the host in his speech.[1] It presumably consists of two teams playing against each other by trying to manoeuvre one's head into the opponent's goal, using a hockey stick.
