‘Beat the Press’ Broomball Game at Worcester Common Oval

Wednesday, January 14, 2015

 

On Friday, reporters from Worcester will take on city officials in a game of Broomball at the Worcester Common Oval.

The event, 'Beat the Press 2015,' will be a "grudge match" between Mayor Joe Petty and City Manager Ed Augustus' City Hall team of city councilors and department heads versus representatives from media outlets such as GoLocal Worcester, Telegram and Gazette, Worcester Magazine, Worcester News Tonight, MassLive, Worcester Business Journal, Cumulus Media, and WCRN.

Broomball is like hockey, except it's played in sneakers on ice and participants use a broom stick instead of a hockey stick and a ball instead of a puck.

The event is free of charge and will run from 4 PM to 5 PM. 

About the Oval

The rink is open for public skating:

 Fridays, 5-8 p.m.

 Saturdays and Sundays, noon-5 p.m.

 Holidays and school vacation weeks

The 12,000-square-foot rink, which opened in 2012, is 4,000 square feet larger than the rink at New York City’s Rockefeller Center. The Oval has piped-in music, skate rentals, concessions, holiday lights, and more, making it a fun and affordable family-friendly activity. The Oval is possible through the generous support of Hanover Insurance Company, MCPHS University, College of the Holy Cross, Fallon Community Health Plan, Baystate Savings Bank, the Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts, Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare, and Destination Worcester.
