Activities at the International Sports Village
Activities at the International Sports Village are broken down into 3 key parts of the complex – the Arena, the International Pool, and the International White Water.
Between these 3 exciting developments there is enough entertainment and fun to keep the whole family happy for the entire duration of your stay at the complex – so get stuck in and check out everything that we have to offer here at the International Sports Village.
The Arena, also known as the Bay Ice Arena, has a capacity of 2,500 and is used to host ice hockey matches and for ice skating.
Ice skating is an excellent way to stay fit and healthy and can be used effectively to burn off excess energy and calories and can form part of your health and fitness regime.
The Arena hosts after-school skates between 4pm – 6pm to encourage younger people to take advantage of the facilities.
The Arena also offers “Ice Toddlers” with lots of toys and games that you and your child can play with on the ice. Whilst the adults have the opportunity to make new friends, the little ones can build their confidence whilst having lots of fun on the ice within a safe environment.
Ice Toddlers takes place every Wednesday between 4pm – 4.30pm.
You are likely to be hungry after whizzing around the ice and with this in mind, the arena also offers a meal deal package, where a skate and your choice of hot dog, burger or veggie burger with chips and a drink is available.
