Kick start your New Year by battling it out with friends and colleagues in a Broomball tournament at Broadgate Ice Rink. If an adrenalin-filled slide on the ice isn’t for you, learn how to skate with grace and style with lessons from Robert Burgerman, our new Skate Coach.
Broomball is back!
We’re bringing back our popular Broomball tournaments to Broadgate Ice Rink on Tuesday evenings in 2015. If you think you’ve got what it takes to stay upright on the ice whilst batting a ball with a ‘broom’ in the right direction, get a team together and get in touch.
Broomball is a fast, furious, highly energetic and fun sport from Canada – think ice hockey without the skates. Mixed teams of up to eight players (six on the ice at one time including a goalie) battle it out in ten minute matches, trying to score more goals than the opposition.
Teams are kitted out with knee and elbow pads, a crash helmet and a ‘broom’ – all you need to bring with you is warm clothes, a pair of trainers and extra clothes to change into after.
Tuesday 13 January (7-9pm) - Winner: RUNWILD
Tuesday 20 January (7-9pm) – FULLY BOOKED
Tuesday 27 January (7-9pm) - FULLY BOOKED
Tuesday 3 February (7-9pm) - ONE TEAM SPACE LEFT
Tuesday 10 February (7-9pm) - THREE TEAM SPACES AVAILABLE
Tuesday 24 February (7-9pm) - AVAILABLE
Tuesday tournaments include up to five teams and cost £100 per team (£12.50 per person based on a full team of eight).
If you would like to get involved, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place for your team. If you can’t get a full team together contact us and we will do our best to match you on your preferred date. The rink is also available for private hire - contact us for information.
Rink-side bar, The Tasting Room will be providing the winning team each Tuesday with a free bucket of beer! If competing isn't for you, the heated terrace is the best place to watch all the action on the ice – plus there are some great offers on food and drink available too:
- Broomball Beer or Cider & Bun - £9.50 (7pm - 10pm)
- Post Broomball selected craft beers – 2 for 1
