Sport to start com­pe­ti­tion

Broome Advertiser - - Sport - Robert Dougherty

Broome ath­letes have been given the op­por­tu­nity to test their sprint­ing, team­work and hand-eye co-or­di­na­tion with a so­cial floorball com­pe­ti­tion.

The fast-paced in­door sport — some­thing akin to non-con­tact ice hockey us­ing a plas­tic ball, plas­tic sticks with box goals — was tri­alled this month in a se­ries of free Mon­day night games.

The sport has since made the dash to a round-robin com­pe­ti­tion on Tues­days at Broome Re­cre­ation and Aquatic Cen­tre’s in­door courts, start­ing this week.

BRAC staff are ex­pected to al­lo­cated teams from par­tic­i­pants who ar­rive at the courts from 6pm, with three games played per night, each match played with two, 10-minute halves.

For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact BRAC on 9191 8720 or email brac@broome.wa.gov.au.
