Ice Safety Rules
Ice skating is a hazardous activity which skaters take part in at their own risk. In a busy club, there is limited space, and these sensible rules are in the interests of all skaters.
Always skate in an anti-clockwise direction. The middle circle of the ice is used by more experienced skaters, such as Skate UK Star, who want to practice jumps and spins.
Do not eat, drink or chew gum when on the ice. If you fall you may choke.
Skating lessons are held at the end of the ice. Skaters not in a lesson must ensure they do not interrupt a class by skating through it.
Loose clothing such as scarves and hats could fall onto the ice and cause an accident, and should not be worn to club.
Hockey skates are not permitted.
Please do not leave valuables in unattended clothing or bags. Keep your money with you, safely zipped in a pocket. The Club cannot be responsible for belongings left unattended.
The club welcomes skaters of all ages, but we ask that all children under nine years old remain in the care of a responsible adult, who need not be on the ice.
Please be aware that if you are a beginner - while hopefully Club can help you quickly build confidence on the ice - we don't have one to one support available for new skaters. For our younger beginners the rink does have on ice help in the shape of penguins which you can use in the early stages.
The club supervises skaters in the ice rink during club time. Part of the entrance fee covers insurance.
We cannot be held responsible for anyone who leaves the building.
