The Ice Rink Managers Association (IRMA), British Ice Skating (BIS) and the English Ice Hockey Association (EIHA) have announced that from 17th May, adults will be able to return to ice sports across England.

In line with the government’s roadmap out of lockdown, both adult and children’s activities will – for the first time in months – be permitted to take place in just seven days’ time.

There will still be some limits in place with specific guidance due to be released by the relevant governing body. This will include rules on any mitigation needed for contact elements and changing room rules.

The long and difficult period off the ice for many is slowly ending. IRMA, BIS and the EIHA would like to thank the entire ice sports community for rallying round over what has been a very challenging year.
