    Hi all,

    Just wondering if there is anyone else around the uni who would be interested in trying to start an ice hockey team? Maybe even for next year? Im gonna be starting my 2nd year next year, and even tho the rink in Plymouth isnt ideal for hockey, we may as well try and get a team sorted.

    My skating isnt amazing, in fact my backwards is pretty poor, so im only really in for the fun of it, as there are quite a few unis around the country that have teams now.

    Obviously if anyone is interested it helps to at least be able to skate forward, but at this stage, who really gives a ****!?!?

    But yer if anyone is interested drop me a message!!

    Cheers guys!!!

    Actually I am, but according to the guys down at the rink this shouldnt happen untill next year at the earliest.

    Either way, I believe that a new rink is being built over near the Life Centre for 2015.

    So yer i think there maybe a period of time where there is no ice rink, which isnt very helpful, but at least its being replaced, and fairly soon by the sounds of things.

    Hi mate,

    Thats awesome, but yer Inline and Ice skates are really similar, I used to roller blade a lot as well, ice skates do have a different feel to them, but for you it would just to a matter of getting used to the change.
    But ive been emailing our Vice President of Sports here at the uni, and ive also been talking to exisiting teams around the country at other unis. So its kind of a slow process at the moment, as there isnt a whole lot of interest.
    But thats great mate, il be starting my 2nd year in September and im here for 4, so theres pleanty of time.

    But il keep in touch mate, good luck with the summer, and hopefully il see you down here in September.
