It’s time to get your Hamill Camel on!!!


For better or worse… it’s winter in the Hamptons so you might as well make the most of it. This weekend, ice skating returns to Buckskill Tennis Club or as it’s known in the winter BUCKSKILL WINTER CLUB. While some egg heads in the Hamptons may choose to muse about Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s “One Hundred Years of Solitude” while penning the details about the BUCKSKILL SKATING RINK – I kid you not… check this link…

I will merely proceed with the bare bones facts!! The rink operates during daylight hours (they used to do night skating but cranky neighbors complained). The NHL sized rink opens around 7:30 am for open skating closes around 9 am for special events (Hockey, lessons, etc.) and reopens in the afternoon til about 5:30pm.

The rink has it’s own Zamboni machine to keep the ice clear and smooth. There’s also an outdoor fire pit and a concession stand serving hot chocolate and other refreshments. The cost for Children is $8. on weekdays and $12 on weekends and $12 and $18 for adults. Skates are also available for rent $3 for kids $5 for adults. All in all, it’s not too expensive and a heck of a lot more fun than skating on the unsalted sidewalks in front of Walbaums or sliding in the greasy parking lot!

For more details you can also call 631-324-2243. There were rumors that Sag Harbor was also trying to do a rink on the wharf but apparently we were SAVED by a certain organization.
