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.

Disabled Inclusion Sessions

National Ice Centre Disabled Inclusion Ice Skating

The National Ice Centre offers skating opportunities for disabled people and their families. Sessions are open for all to try out the ultimate experience of Ice Skating regardless of your age or disability.

Disabled people can access the ice in many ways depending on individual requirements. Options available include; on ice skates; in your own wheelchair; or in one of the purpose built sledges.

Coaches and stewards are on hand throughout to provide advice and assistance. (Please note that this is for general coaching advice, structured lessons and one-on-one coaching are available separately, please contact the Ticketing and Customer Services for further information).

Where a sledge is required, we have a booking procedure in place in all sessions which allows persons to assess the use of a sledge for 15 minute slots; this will help to accommodate the specialist needs of the skater and a fairer system for allocating the equipment needed for some of the skaters. Bookings are again required in advance at the time of booking on to the session and on a first come first served basis.

The NIC is an accessible venue with disabled access and disabled parking bays. There is also a café adjacent to the rink where you can warm up with a variety of hot drinks and snacks

Up and coming sports to look out for are sledge hockey – covering both the on ice version and “brand new” inline sledge version on wheels.

Family Sessions

Family sessions run on Sundays between 10am – 10.45am (not every week – please telephone to check). The session price is £6.50 per person – (one carer free per disabled person).

As this is a very popular activity please be aware that booking in advance is essential, to avoid disappointment please do not arrive on the day without a booking. If any extra spaces are available on the day these will be charged at £7.50 per person. Customer Services can be contacted on 0843 373 3000.
