In cities up and down the UK we see Ice rinks pop up around Christmas as families get together and enjoy the festive season. But it doesn’t have to be Christmas to enjoy the ice. The UK is home to some great indoor and outdoor ice rinks and with the popularity of Ice Hockey growing every year it is something that seems to be here to stay.
You can find your local ice rink online and also enquire about activites such as ice skating, ice hockey, curling and more with some great opportunities for people to get involved. Beyond the ice itself it is amazing to think of the effort that goes into mainting an ice rink from start to finish with brands such as Zamboni and Inducomm becoming synonymous with the industry to insiders.

Of course this doesn’t cover all the opportunities available across the UK so if you have been enjoying the ice near where you stay get in touch, share your pictures and let us know about your experience.

You might have heard of, or even taken part in, one of the notoriously hard endurance races known as Tough Mudders. They’re designed to put people through more than just the motions and have people run through fire, electrified wire and all sorts of obstacles you’d never get at Sports day. So do their offices have the same notion? Well no obviously as that would be a health and safety nightmare, but it doesn’t mean the offices don’t have a hard time looking as tough as possible.
