The Rink page on the iowskaters.com site has now been updated to reflect the new opening times and skating schedule for Ryde Arena under the ownership of the community trust.
Importantly, for anyone visiting the rink from the mainland, the daytime private hire sessions during term time on Monday to Thursday from 10am to 2.45pm are now periods when the rink is shut to the public (unless, of course, it is hired). This is for the simple reason that almost no one uses the rink at these times. As always, the advice remains to check before travelling that the rink is open – the rink’s phone number is 01983 615155. Opening times will be different during school holidays.
Ryde Arena does not yet have a full website, but there is a Facebook page at www.facebook.com/Rydearena
