Sport Aberdeen is pleased to announce that finance is in place to repair a long-lasting maintenance issue at the Linx Ice Arena affecting the plant area. In order to proceed with this essential maintenance, a closure will be required to carry out this important work. 

A four-week scheme of work has been designed by Star Refrigeration, refrigeration plant experts, and we have identified a preferred closure date of Monday 23 July with a view of reopening on Monday 20 August 2018. This timing coincides with venue programming, and means we will be ready for the peak ice season.

For our Learn to Skate pupils – you won't be charged in August. Classes will resume on Monday 20 August 2018.

Private coaches skaters will be contacted by their coach, and off-ice training will be available in any Sport Aberdeen venue.

Club skaters will be contacted by their respective clubs, and will start back at the rink on Monday 20 August 2018.

All other programming will resume as normal from Monday 20 August 2018, including the much anticipated return of the Friday Night Disco!
