Zinkensdamms idrottsplats, usually Zinkensdamms IP or colloquially Zinken or Zinkens, is a sports ground in Södermalm in central Stockholm, Sweden.

The ground was designed by architect Paul Hedqvist[1] and was inaugurated on 18 May 1937 with a football game between Reymersholms IK and Djurgårdens IF.[2]

Nowadays, it is mainly known for bandy, because Hammarby IF, playing in the highest bandy league in Sweden (Elitserien), use it as its home ground. The ice can be artificially frozen since 1986.[3] It is also used as the home ground for association football team Reymersholms IK and American football team Stockholm Mean Machines. Matches were played at the 1997 European Lacrosse Championships.
