The old Montem Ice Arena was stripped back to the original steel and completely rebuilt with a 1000m2 extension fronting the Bath Road.

New facilities include a fully refurbished ice rink, café, climbing wall, gym, party zone and changing facilities.

The Ice Arena is home to the Slough Jets ice hockey team and many community groups participating in ice-based sports.


The refurbishment and extension works were undertaken by Slough Urban Renewal (SUR). The refurbished ice arena and new extension add an extra 1,000m2 of space. The two-storey extension houses the new entrance, reception, café, gym and climbing wall with clip ‘n’ climb feature. The new facility is being managed by the council’s leisure provider EveryoneActive. 

The Ice Arena won Best Public Service Building in the LABC Building Excellence Awards 2019 and it was selected to feature in the SPACES Yearbook 2019.
