Inverness Ice Skating and Dancing Club claim success in friendly competition

The competitors had a busy day.

Members of a local ice skating club competed in a friendly spinning, spiraling and dancing competition led by their coaches.

The Inverness Ice Skating and Dancing Club saw skaters of all ages, some as young as four, turn up and take part in the day’s party.

Tesco kindly donated crisps and water to performers and the club was selling flowers and merchandise.

The seniors took to the ice first, followed by each level thereafter. Each skater performed three items they are working on for their grades and enjoyed having fun and wearing their costumes after a tough time due to lockdown.

Club secretary Sarah Mackintosh was delighted with the event.

“This is the first competition we have been able to run since the summer of 2019 due to Covid closures and restrictions,” she said.

“It was a great success and our members really enjoyed the day.

“We were excited to be able to resume running events and are already planning the next one!”
