WORLD GIRLS’ ICE HOCKEY WEEKEND

Three World Girls’ Ice Hockey Weekend events were held in different cities across the UK last weekend.

Attracting participants of all ages, these events were a massive success.

Nottingham was the venue for an on-ice skill session for 22 attendees, organized by the Vipers, the local senior women’s hockey team at the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham.

The Whitley Bay Ice Club got 22 participants out for a combination of off-ice activities and on-ice skills.

And the Sheffield Shadows club had 100 participants enjoying free skating and sampling hockey at Ice Sheffield.

The Sheffield event was tied into the ‘This Girl Can’ campaign.

“The World Girls’ Ice Hockey Weekend will help to grow female participation in the UK and across the world,” said event co-ordinator Ryan Rathbone.

“It was great to get involved with some new clubs who have not taken part in the initiative previously as well.”
