Broomball was established in the 1950's between the UK, US and Canadian embassies in Moscow. It has been played outdoors in the winter in Moscow ever since.
Today the Moscow Broomball League consists of 10 men teams and 5 women teams. We play at the German embassy. The season starts early December and usually ends in March.
Although there is a similar broomball sport played in the USA and internationally, ours is different and more like ice hockey. Â Basically the sport is like ice hockey, only without the skates. It is incredibly fun, and although we do take it seriously, people without ice hockey experience can easily join! The league also has a strong social side beyond the actual games.
If you want to join a team please or to start your own team, please email Tom Sauer at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will direct you towards a relevant captain.
