Deeside Leisure Centre
Deeside Leisure Centre is a sports centre located in Queensferry, Flintshire, Wales. Its facilities include Deeside Ice Rink, an Olympic-sized inline hockey rink, badminton courts and squash courts. The Centre was the venue for the 1974 Wightman Cup match.
The ice rink is the National Centre for Ice Sports in Wales and is home to the ice hockey teams the Deeside Dragons, the Flintshire Phantoms and the Deeside Demons. It was used as a temporary home by the Manchester Phoenix during the 2006–07 EIHL season while the Altrincham Ice Dome was being constructed. The Phoenix moved back to Deeside for the 2015/16 Season after they were kicked out of Altrincham by the rink's owners the Phoenix are hoping to move into a brand new rink in Manchester from the 2016/17 season. There has also been a new indoor skate park and gym added to the leisure centre.
The Leisure Centre is run and controlled by Flintshire County Council which also governs similar leisure centres in towns such as Buckley, Mold and Connah's Quay. It offers an 'actif' membership which offers reduced admission prices over standard admission.
