National Ice Centre

The National Ice Centre (NIC) is the UK’s first twin ice pad facility and centre of excellence for Ice Sports. The NIC comprises of two Olympic size ice rinks, (one of which is located in the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham). The biggest ice sports store in the UK, Ice Locker, is also situated here.

The NIC is used as a training base by many of Great Britain’s bright young skaters. It is home to the GB Short Track Speed Skating Squad and the oldest and most successful ice hockey team in the country, the GMB Nottingham Panthers.

Nottingham has a long tradition of ice skating stretching back many years. Olympic and World Champions Jane Torvill and Christopher Dean trained at the NIC for many years before and after their incredible win at the Sarajevo 1984 Winter Olympics, where they became the highest scoring ice dance skaters of all time. The square outside the NIC is known as Bolero Square in honour of the pair’s Olympic achievements.

There are a range of ice skating sessions on offer to suit all ages and abilities every day, from quieter family or toddler sessions to disco sessions and theme parties.

Ice Skating Session Types

Standard
A relaxed environment to develop your skating. These sessions are popular with all skaters of all ages and abilities.

Disco
When the weekend arrives it’s time to get your skates on. Friday night, Saturday night and Saturday afternoons are our disco sessions, where local DJs play top tunes while you skate under the dancing lights! Please note the on ice equipment is not available during disco sessions.

Socialice
A fantastic session especially for adults, taking place between 10-11.30am on a Tuesday and Thursday when we have two ice pads in operation. This will give over 18’s the chance to have a relaxed skate, sharpen their skills and meet up with friends.

Parent & Toddler

Parent and Toddler skating sessions are a great activity to enjoy with your little ones. Children aged between 18 months and five years (smallest skate size is a child’s size 5) can take to the ice, build their confidence and increase their co-ordination. Our expert coaches will be on the ice with you and your youngsters, along with our on-ice equipment characters, so they will be encouraged to learn through playing in a safe environment.
Disabled Inclusion ice skating and family sessions are also available.

Learn to Skate courses
Learn to ice skate on the very same site where Nottingham legends Jayne Torvill & Christopher Dean once trained. Skating lessons at the National Ice Centre are available to people of all ages and abilities and lessons can be carried out intensively over three days or over a six-week period. You can progress into various disciplines including ice hockey, figure skating and speed skating which have separate courses. Visit national-ice-centre.com for more information and to watch videos on what you will learn.
