Border Ice Rink is situated next to Kelso Racecourse on the edge of town.  Two winter sports are offered, 7 days a weeks, between October and March. Visitors are very welcome, we have ample free parking, inside there is a café and bar where we can offer free WiFi.


From Monday to Saturday, curling takes place.  Across the ice pad you are able to play four games at the same time.  Border clubs use the ice during the week for inter-club games and also competition against other clubs. There is regular coaching on Saturday mornings throughout the season from 9.30am, with new comers very welcome. Please check the website for session dates and click on Coaching. Sessions on weekdays can be arranged on request for people who wish to try curling, with 24 hour notice required so a session can be organised.


On Sundays, there are Public Skating sessions from 2.45 – 5.15pm. Skates are available to be hired from a child size 8 upwards.  We offer a discounted family ticket and special arrangements can be made for group bookings.  We also have extra skating sessions around the festive period. Ice Discos take place on Saturday nights once a month.  Please visit our website and click on Skating for full details.
