Sub Zero Ice Rink was an ice rink, in Cleveleys, Lancashire, England. The rink was 36 metres (118 ft) x 22 metres (72 ft).

It was home to the Fylde Flyers, Blackpool Seagulls and Wyre Seagulls ice hockey teams.

History[edit]

Sub Zero Leisure secured the lease for the building in 2010 and began converting it into an ice rink.[1] The rink opened in April 2011.[2] The rink was home to the Fylde Coast Figure Skating Club.[3]

Three ice hockey teams played at the ice rink. Fylde Flyers played in the English National Ice Hockey League, North Two Division. It was also home to two recreational teams, the re-formed Blackpool Seagulls and Wyre Seagulls.

As of summer 2013 the rink was placed under new management by the building owners. The new rink then traded as Jubilee Ice Arena.

In 2015 the rink closed and went into liquidation in 2016. Later that year, the premises opened as a family entertainment centre.[4]

Note; If the dimensions quoted above are correct it was a very small rink, since the American (or Imperial) size for a hockey rink is 85 x 185 ft and a full (or Olympic) size rink is 30M x 60M (about 100ft x 200ft).
