Friday 17th September 2021 marks the 25th Anniversary of Planet Ice, founded by Andreas Gregoriou and Mike Petrouis. On that day in 1996, the first Planet Ice skating rink opened in Birmingham.

Planet Ice now operates 14 ice rinks across England, with it’s 15th venue at Bristol’s Cribbs Causeway due to open in Autumn 2021.

To celebrate this special anniversary, Planet Ice are offering a double discount on public ice skating for all its ‘Ice Card’ members between Friday 17th and Sunday 19th September. Also 25 pence of every booking made online for sessions taking place this weekend will go to our chosen charity ‘The MS Society‘ which has been a Planet Ice charity partner for many years.

Caroline Kew at the MS Society commented

“We are really pleased to be working with Planet Ice again and hope their 25th birthday weekend fundraising is a huge success!”.

Planet Ice founder Mike Petrouis commented

“We have had the pleasure of working with a number of very dedicated people over the last 25 years, l would like to take this opportunity to thank them all. Our customers, coaches, ice hockey teams and fans have created their own ice skating memories since we started the business in 1996, all of which we’re hugely proud to have been a part of.”

Heath Rhodes (COO since 2017) commented

“It’s been an immense journey watching the brand grow to where we are today. I would like to think Planet Ice has played a significant part in British Ice sports over the last 25 years, from our 14, soon to be 15, ice rinks. The last two years have posed significant challenges for our staff, our customers, and the leisure industry as a whole. With rinks and leisure centres closing in some parts of the country, I’m proud to say we have weathered the storm and all of our buildings remain open and operational. This is a huge testament to our committed team.”

On a final note, Heath adds

“it has always been one of our goals, set by Andreas (deceased in 2005) and Mike in 1996, to have the Planet Ice brand visible across the entire UK, now it feels as though we’re truly heading in that direction.”

Planet Ice would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers, who have been ice skating with us over the last 25 years. We invite you to join us this weekend in creating more magical ice skating memories with your friends and family.
