Warm weather is nice; it’s perfect for spending the day outside, or going for a stroll to take in all the sights and sounds. But, when it comes to sports, winter trumps all the other seasons. With the arrival of winter weather there’s playing in the snow, sledding, and the all-timeCanadian favourites– skating and hockey. Wouldn’t it be nice if you had a backyard rink to enjoy all of those beloved Canadian winter sports? Now you can, and the best part is that setting up a rink in your backyard has never been easier.


A backyard ice rink is easier to install than you might think, if you use a quality rink kit.

The benefits of using a backyard rink kit are many. One reason, besides taking under two hours to assemble, is that no tools are required. With a kit, all the materials are right there at your disposal. You don’t need to run out and get additional tools or material, so the kit is very convenient. Building a rink completely from scratch can be time consuming, and challenging especially if you’ve never done it before. A rink kit contains all the components you’ll need to enjoy your backyard rink in just two hours, including a heavy-duty polyethylene rink liner. All of these items can be delivered to your door in no time, packaged together in one handy kit.

The rink liner is perhaps the most essential component of the rink kit and they come in a few different sizes and thicknesses, depending on how many seasons you want to be able to use the same liner. There are also a number of additional accessories that a backyard rink store, such as www.rinkmaster.com, can provide, that will make your backyard rink experience even more fun. Visit Rink Master, Canada’s most popular backyard rink store, for rink kits and accessories such as pond nets, replacement rink liners, skate mats, flooding cloths, their Flood Master wand for a uniform and bubble-free ice surface, and hockey stick holders.

You’ll be the envy and hotspot of your neighborhood with the perfect backyard ice rink. Imagine the relief it will be that your children can just step out your backyard and be enjoying quality winter activities – and all from the comfort of your own home!
