Benoni Ice Rink Elston Avenue

Benoni had its own Ice Rink in the later 1970’s. I can’t recall exactly when it was built and when it closed down.

I spent many a Saturday afternoon at the rink and remember those days fondly. I remember when my Folks bought me my first pair of Adidas ice hockey skates. They were yellow and black and served me for many years.

In the day (70’s and 80’s) it was safe for us to walk from Farrarmere through town to enjoy a Saturday afternoon at the ice rink. Unfortunately today not so safe anymore.

The Benoni Ice Rink was located in Elston Avenue and built by the late Aubrey Ritz who was also a mayor of Benoni in 1982 and 1983.

The building that was the ice rink has been turned into flats

Can you remember the ice rink in Benoni?
