Rinks began to re-open after the war. The British Championships were revived in May at Wembley. Championship winners were Cecilia Colledge, Graham Sharp and Denis and Winifred Silverthorne. At the end of the year one of Britain's most famous Rinks opened. It was the Sportsdrome at Richmond in Surrey. It closed in 1991. 1929
To mark the centenary of the formation of the NSA, a celebratory lunch was held at the Guildhall in Cambridge, birthplace of the NSA. Later a Gala was organised at the Empire Pool in Wembley. This was attended by the patron of the NSA, HRH Queen Elizabeth ll and the Duke of Edinburgh. Michelle Sloan is a superbly versatile writer; she has written picture books, books for younger readers, for teens, and now, in The Edinburgh Skating Club, has shown she’s just as accomplished in writing for adults. With a dual narrative that takes in the 18th Century of Enlightenment Edinburgh and the 21st Century, tied together by the famous picture of The Skating Minister, Sloan takes us on a journey of social experimentation and art historical detective work that delights and charms.
Book review: The Edinburgh Skating Club, by Michelle Sloan
The River Thames froze over for several weeks. "The Great Frost Fair" was held on the ice and Samuel Pepys skated with King Charles II’s mistress, Nell Gwynn. 1742 From this description and others, it is apparent that the form of skating practiced by club members was indeed an early form of figure skating rather than speed skating. For admission to the club, candidates had to pass a skating test where they performed a complete circle on either foot (e.g., a figure eight), and then jumped over first one hat, then two and three, placed over each other on the ice.  Perspective members had to demonstrate flow and control on edges by skating a complete circle in the ice on each foot, similar to figure eights in compulsory figures but unlike them in that the circles did not have to be joined together. Skaters also had to "demonstrate athletic daring" by jumping over one to three hats placed on the ice. Now there is nothing wrong with not being transgender, but I do think it’s an odd choice for the author to make. I am unsure if Sloan realised quite how trans coded her main character is, or if that was an accident. These things are easy to do. The World Men's Championship was held at the Ice Club, Westminster. The winner was the legendary Swedish architect, poet and painter, Gillis Grafstrom(1893-1938) Three time Olympic Gold medallist and runner up in 1932, he seldom bothered to enter the World Championships, but when he did , he won.
