Ice skating started some 4000 years ago in the south of Finland. Originally, skates were with bone attached to the sole. Adding edges is the first human created the modern skates in 13th or 14 century.


Originally in the Netherlands, ice skating was considered for every one, but when James II of England went to Netherlands, he loved this sport and he imported it to England. In England this new sport was for aristocracy.  King Louis XVII of France built a skating rink in pairs during his reign.

Nowadays there are many forms of ice skating:

Bandy (played on ice using a single round ball. Two teams of 11 played each compete to get the ball into the other team’s goal using sticks, thereby scoring a goal.), figure skating (artistic skating is an Olympic sport.), ice hockey (there are two teams in the rink. Their objective is too scored in the opposing goal.), Ringette (is a team sport. Ringette requires the use of straight sticks to control a rubber rink, the objective is to score goals.), short track (is a competition, where multiple skaters skate on an oval ice track with a circumference), tour skating (is a sport and recreational form of long distance ice skating on natural ice)

To skate you need:

A good pair of skates because if you don’t buy a good pair skates will break and the blade will oxidize.

If you want to play bandy, ice hockey or ringette you need a sticks and a helmet to protect your head.

If you want play short track or tour skating you need a helmet.

You also need gloves.
