Let’s go skate in the Hamptons

Buckskill ice skating rink east hampton

Ice skating in the Hamptons? We live in an area known for its summer season and beaches, but when winter comes it’s time to put the skates on. And we don’t have to wait for a big freeze to turn local ponds into ice. Instead we head to the woods where summer tennis courts are transformed into an ice skating rink. East Hampton’s Buckskill Summer Tennis Club becomes Buckskill Winter Club.

My kids first had a refresher lesson to regain their confidence on the ice.

After two days of festive feasting it was time to be outside and…slide, twirl and fall.

Lesson over and time for the public sessions to begin. I tied my laces and joined my children and the crowd of families entering the rink for seasonal skating in the Hamptons.

  1. You got some lovely shots there. Looks a great place to skate. We have only done it once as a whole family as we fell over quite a bit – ought to go again.

  2. This looks like so much fun! Would love for little T (and me!) to learn how to skate too. You’re definitely right, when one hears the place the Hampton’s mentioned, one thinks of beaches, the sun and summer. As always, lovely photos 🙂

    1. Thank you! There’s some fun outdoor things to do in the winter with the kids in the Hamptons, like skating, or even walks on the beach!

  3. How fab, we love ice skating – just what we have been doing today! Every winter The Eden Project in Cornwall turns it’s concert area into an ice rink, it’s very popular with old and young alike. Judging by the happy photos your children had a fantastic time. Thanks for linking up and sharing with Country Kids.

    1. We plan to do some more next week and then at the weekends when we have a change too! The Eden Project skate rink sounds amazing.
