We’re bringing back our popular Broomball tournaments to Broadgate Ice Rink on Tuesday evenings in early 2016. 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. See Broomball at Broadgate on YouTube here.
You’ll be 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 12 January (7-9pm) - Winner: The sunflower seeds

Tuesday 26 January (7-9pm) - Cancelled

If competing isn't for you, The Tasting Room's 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. Enjoy Happy Hour deals and 15% off food from 6pm-9pm every Tuesday. Try out some brand new dishes from their 2016 menu, including delicious salads, Tempura Prawns and Nachos.
