Pond Hockey is a beloved activity of those living in cold-climate states. It has been around for decades and began with hockey fans making skating space almost anywhere large enough for a game: on frozen local ponds or on flooded “rinks” in back yards and town greens. The hockey was informal, ad hoc, and provided hours of fun. No fancy equipment was needed to clear the ice—snow shovels and brooms did the trick. And no fancy equipment was needed for the players either. Local, informal pond hockey is still widely enjoyed and has spawned very popular, official pond hockey tournaments.
In the Upper Valley there are several pond hockey tournaments coming up. Hosted at the Lake Morey Resort:
- Frostbite Face-Off: January 24th-26th, 2020
- Vermont Pond Hockey Championship: February 1st & 2nd, 2020
- Put Cancer on Ice Pond Hockey Tournament: February 8th & 9th, 2020
