The undisputed coolest place in the city for sports is Zayed Sports City Ice Rink. As the city's only Olympic-size skating surface, it hosts the most thrilling ice hockey matches and figure skating shows in the UAE. Amenities abound, including a pro-shop, a dance studio, private event space and the best pizza in town at Figaro's. Zayed Sports City Ice Rink is fun for all ages and is the best place to pop in for a recreational session, learn to skate at any age, join the figure skating team's annual show or to meet friends for a weekend disco. Coaching is available for groups and individuals from beginner to Olympic hopeful and the membership programme is sure to keep you skating all year round.

rink is really small and is really only for children ... it would help the children a lot if there was someone there to show them what skating means in movement. It was sad to see most children trying to walk and believe they are skating.

Easy to find and access. The facility itself is very good and clean. The ice surface and lighting is adequate for the game.
