A game played on ice on the Bald Spot rink, kind of like ice hockey but with shoes instead of skates, brooms instead of hockey sticks, and a ball instead of a puck. Elbow and knee pads are not technically allowed, although some players wear them secretly under their clothes in order to make spectacular diving plays without breaking anything.
Broomball takes place at The Bald Spot
The Bald Spot may be treeless, but it's rarely empty. This grassy expanse in the middle of campus sees a constant stream of activity: Frisbee games, al fresco studying and picnics in spring, broomball in winter, huge campus gatherings for Commencement and Reunion.
