Return to Skating
Ipswich Skating Club is starting to skate again.
We are now using the facilities of the Inspire Suffolk Charity at Lindbergh Road in Ipswich which will enable ISC to work on its vision to grow a regional skating hub. This gives us use of a large facility capable of expanding our leisure activities and further developing our skating disciplines.
Our competitive Artistic skaters have already begun to train there and we now intend to phase in weekly leisure skating sessions, recreational speed and fitness skating, artistic improvers and learn to skate sessions for our members.
When they are able to open, we will also be using the Ipswich Fit Sports Centres, continuing to develop our partnership with both them and Felixstowe School but this new opportunity at Inspire Suffolk will give our members a chance to skate every weekend, with potential to expand to at least one weekday evening each and every week.
The COVID-19 crisis poses severe problems for all sports and sporting venues and it takes time and planning to find a way to move forwards safely for our membership, ensuring compliance with current rules and regulations.
The government may change these rules with short notice, so we will need to work with current guidelines and react quickly to changes as and when they occur. This may mean periods of closure but we will keep everyone informed.’
