BroomBall ... What the heck is BroomBall?
Broomball is a sport played on an outdoor rink or in an ice arena, mostly during winter. The object of the game is to score more goals than the opposing team. Using sticks (a shaft with a molded broom-shaped head), players maneuver a six-inch diameter ball up and down the ice.
Players wear spongy-soled shoes, instead of hockey skates, to gain traction when running of the ice surface.
