hello, we are the essex blades ice skating club
Ice skating was officially reognised as a sport in 1876 and is the process of gliding across an icy surface on metal blades attached to the botom of shoes (skates). It is also a popular activity to do recreationally. Since being recognised as a sport, it has given rise to two distinct forms of skating: speed skating, which is a form of racing on skates and figure skating, which involves the peformance of various dance movements, spins and jumps.
How many teams do we have?
We are a brand new club looking to offer opportunities for people to ice skate. Currently, there are no specific competition teams.
