The infamous Burton US Open Broomball Tournament returns to the Solaris Ice rink for 2017! The Broomball Tournament is held as a side-competition to the US Open and is open to the public.
Everyone is invited to come cheer on the teams as they battle to become the 2017 champions. Spectators will enjoy the best happy hour in town with beer specials, athlete signings, on-ice contests for Burton gear and the chance to witness the greatest Broomball spectacle in North America!
ALRIGHT, WHAT IS BROOMBALL?
Broomball is a team sport based on ice-hockey and played in a ice rink, however there are a few differences—instead of ice skates players use rubber-soled shoes to move around the rink, and instead of hockey sticks participants use a broom to score goals. Like hockey two teams face-off attempting to score goals by hitting a ball into the opponent’s net. Got it?
• Must be 21+ to enter
