Built mainly in the 70s after the 1968 Olympic Winter Games in Grenoble, French ice rinks are now aging. Renovation costs are high. However, three new ice rinks bloom this year in France. The inaugurations of the ice rinks of Angers, Dunkerque and Louviers are scheduled for September. Two of them will house a synchronized skating club: Dunkerque Skating and Ice Skating Club Louviers.
