Sutton Ice Rink (Lammas Leisure Centre )

Sutton Ice Rink is in the multi-purpose Lammas Leisure Centre at Sutton-in-Ashfield. The centre was built in 2008, and the ice rink has a clean, modern feel.

Lammas Ice Rink is home to several ice hockey teams, including the Sutton Sting of the NIHL North 2 league. However, the rink is too small for adult hockey games, so the team plays its home fixtures at Ice Sheffield. The Sheffield rink is just one of 41 ice rinks in the UK that are home to competitive ice hockey teams.
