Ice Hockey Wiki

The Walpole Brooms were a community based women's ice hockey team from Walpole, Massachusetts. The team appears to have existed from 1964 to 1966. The team was an opponent for the first modern era American collegiate women's ice hockey team, the Pembroke Pandas which represented Pembroke College (formerly the sister college to Brown University and merged into Brown in 1971) in Providence, Rhode Island

The team appears to have won the single game that the teams played during the 1965-66 season. No information appears to exist from the 1964-65 meeting(s) between the teams or if the Brooms played any other teams during the two seasons the team appears to have played.
