Broomball, also known as broomball or Broomball, is a Canadian ice sport. It is played on an ice rink of the same size as the one used for ice hockey. There would be about 30,000 players in Canada.
Two teams of six players (including a goalkeeper) compete. The goal of the game is to score more goals than your opponent. Goals are scored by hitting the ball in the opposing net using his broom. The tactics and the game are similar to ice hockey.
Players hit a small ball with a handle called the broom (made either of wood or aluminum) at the end of which is installed a brush in a triangular shape (like a broom). The other peculiarity is that the players are not equipped with ice skates, but with spongy shoes.
