From “Broomball: A Tech Tradition” on Alumni News

“I started at Tech in fall of 1982, and I played plenty of broomball in those years!” – Wendy E.

“I started at Tech in the fall of ’86, and I remember playing broomball then, in organized leagues. It may not have been for Winter Carnival, tho.” – Chris B.

“Broomball was a Winter Carnival competition in the late 1960’s. I know because I was the goalie on the winning team in 67 or 68. We won the “championship game” in a shootout. It was played on the ice at Dee Stadium with brooms tightly taped with black hockey tape. My broom, with date carved into the handle, was taken home as a keepsake and thrown out by my mother as ‘trash'” – Rich S.

“Played in ‘86 through ‘90 on teams made up of people from our dorm (go DHH!). Rink was where the Rosa Center is now. Still have the jersey. Only real rules at the time was how many inches of bristles needed to show below the duct tape on your broom. That and no using it as a bat against other players. Was pretty rough but a lot of fun.” – Todd A.
