Classic Rink, great atmosphere

We've been to a few Storm games this year and this rink still gives me goose bumps. I watched Jeff O'Neil, Bertuzzi, Eddy JO, Ndur, Buschy, Proger, Arnott, Todd Harvey, Jason and... read more

We've been to a few Storm games this year and this rink still gives me goose bumps. I watched Jeff O'Neil, Bertuzzi, Eddy JO, Ndur, Buschy, Proger, Arnott, Todd Harvey, Jason and Jamie Allison, Jamie Rivers (still laugh at him) come through this rink. So to come back NOW with my own 5yr old to watch future stars is an... More

Lots of food, drinks and fun at the Sleeman Centre. A great family outing located in the centre of downtown guelph. Many great restaurants to visit before attending a game or event!

The Sleeman Centre is a good place to see some OHL hockey. It is a fun place for the whole family and is friendly to all those who come. At times it can be a little quiet but that is alright, you do not always need max level of noise to have a good time. I have always enjoyed myself... More

We (my husband, 9 year old son &his friend and I) were at the Sleeman Centre on Sunday to see the Guelph Storm play the Flint Firebirds. The arena is clean and actually quite small. The boys loved that we were right behind the bench and the players would high five them. Great seats were still available just a few... More

Sleeman Centre is primarily an ice hockey arena. It is used for other entertainment events but hockey is its real function. Does a good job in that it is well laid out and has all the usual arena food and retail outlets. Not much else to say. Oh yeah, Guelph lost the hockey game.

Went there with a couple of friends. I will say there is no bad seats. They need to change the protective netting from black to white to see the game better. Scoreboard was really boring. No replays just some boring wheel going around and around. The concession stands were plenty and good variety but after that a boring arena to... More

IF you had been in the old Memorial Gardens to watch a hockey game you loved the place for the atmosphere. It was getting a little old so the new arena is great for fans of the Guelph Storm. Lots of room to roam, drink a beer even during games in one section and proper seating. The food at the... More

Easy to access and close to ample parking. Great for taking in Guelph Storm games. This venue is excellent for not just sports, but other major events as well. The location of this venue is within a short walking distance to a variety of restaurants and pubs.
