Stability aids

We currently offer a hired service of a penguin or snowman stability aid. These stability aids are designed in a way to be pushed across the ice and held onto to support balance.

  • Penguins are for those less than 1.1 metres.
  • Snowmen are available for those over 1.1 metres.

The cost is £3.20 for 30 minutes of use.

Please note: Stability aids are on a first come first served basis only, and designed to support balance but may not prevent falls completely.

Sliders Skate Shop is located inside Telford Ice Rink and is open seven days a week.

We offer a skate sharpening and repair service on site so whether you want to dance on ice like your favourite TV star, play ice hockey or just enjoy ice skating you'll be ready to go.

Telford Ice Rink has a range of lesson courses from beginners to advanced figure and dance. Lessons are suitable from age 3 plus. Regular skating lessons courses consist of six half hour sessions held over a period of six weeks, with an assessment held on the final week.

Social skate is a public skating session. This is the same as a public skate session but the duration is shorter and therefore this is reflected in the price.
