FBBL Broomball is an outdoor (mostly), year-round, all-weather (except lightning) sport — think field hockey but played with homemade “brooms” and a large tennis ball. Games are played on an open basis in the Village. Outdoor games are on the soccer field or the ‘Blackhawk Glade’ between Blackhawk Blvd and Shabbona St, depending on the number of players that day. Indoor games are played about once a week on the Rec Center court for players that have a gym membership. Games are at lunchtime (12:15-12:45) but may include 5 o’clock games during warmer months. Contact Chris Greer  x4847 for more information and to be added to the daily signup list.
