Shinny hockey is so much fun that it’s no longer just the sport of guys. (Actually, it never was: if you look at old archive photos of pre-World War I Toronto, you can see hockey was played by lots of women then too).
In addition to Jeannie Stiglicz’ regular Wednesday shinny permit, there is open women’s shinny for two hours on Tuesdays 9 –11 p.m. at Dufferin Rink.
And now for the first year Dufferin Park will host a City-wide women’s shinny tournament. This tournament doesn’t happen until the weekend of January 6 and 7, but now’s the time to sign up. The organizer is Deirdre Norman [email protected].
There’s so much women’s shinny all over town that Deirdre thought it was time for some friendly competition. Deirdre also lobbied successfully for more women’s open shinny ice time in this part of town: Thursdays 8.30 to 10 p.m. at Wallace Rink (just up the street at Dufferin and Dupont) and Sundays 6 to 8 p.m. at Campbell Rink (two blocks west of Lansdowne, one block south of Dupont). You can find the exact locations of most outdoor city rinks at www.cityrinks.ca.
