Broomball is coming back to Broadskate on Tuesday evenings in early 2017. 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 10-minute matches, trying to score more goals than the opposition. See Broomball at Broadgate on YouTube here.
You’ll be kitted out with knee and elbow pads, gloves, 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 the game.
7-9pm (please arrive at 6.40pm for a briefing before hitting the ice)
Tuesday 24th January - Now full
Monday 30th January - Limited availibility
Tournaments include up to five teams and cost £108 per team (£13.50 per person based on a full team of eight). Please note, teams must be mixed (including a minimum of two female outfield players).
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.
