WhirlyBall in Brookfield will reopen soon after being closed for months because of the coronavirus pandemic.If that sentence sounds familiar, it's because the popular Brookfield location closed last year, then reopened in June 2020, and closed again in November because of an uptick in coronavirus cases in the area at that time. This time, the WhirlyBall location at Brookfield Square, 95 N. Moorland Road, plans to reopen May 1 — but by reservation only.
Where did WhirlyBall come from?In 1962, the owner of an automotive shop in Salt Lake City got the idea for WhirlyBall after observing his son playing a game with a stick and a tin can. Thinking it looked a lot like hockey while driving a golf cart, he was inspired to start something completely new.
