Broomball is a fun alternative to hockey. This sport has the same rules as traditional hockey but they use a stick that resembles a broom and a small ball instead of a puck.
The official regulations for the ball equipment of this sport as stated in the La Crosse Broomball League Rulebook is:
F. The Ball
1. The ball shall be a size 2.5 with a lace-less molded cover of 32 or more panels. The ball shall be made of leather, synthetic leather, or rubber. It shall measure approximately 47cm. in circumference with a weight of 275 grams when inflated. (Baden 332)
