Mathieu Desjardins is reaching out to the ball hockey community to help promote the 1st Annual Bermuda Ball Hockey Classic.
Ball hockey in Bermuda started in the 1980’s by a loosely knit group of die-hard Canadian hockey fans. Over the years guys would get together Saturday mornings to play pick-up hockey at an old converted outdoor roller-skating rink. The number of players on the Island had grown and in the late 1990’s the Bermuda Ball Hockey Association was officially formed.
