Ice skating

Ice skating

Whether you’re doing laps of the rink or learning new tricks, it’s a lot of fun.

Ice skating is a great way to catch up with friends while getting active. There are lots of indoor rinks, so you’ll be able to hit the ice rink rain, hail or shine.

Tip

Be sure to pack some spare clothes as the ice can be wet and very cold if you fall.

Benefits

  • Improve your balance and coordination
  • Build overall strength

What you need

Appropriate warm clothes (including thick, long socks) and ice skates, however nearly all ice rinks will have ice skates for hire.
