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.
