The Hanna Agri-Sports Complex houses both the Skating and Curling Rink which are located in the recreation block.  The Arena is beneficial for hosting larger events as it shares  common services with other facilities such as the parking lot in conjunction with the Community Centre.

The arena is complete with four large dressing rooms, official’s room, a fully modern concession area, a spacious lobby and entrance, complete washroom amenities, and a large bleacher seating area along the ice surface.

The regulation ice surface is utilized for various activities such as horse and cattle shows, rodeo, hockey, figure skating, public skating, large sales, concerts and many other events.

If you would like to take advantage of any open ice available at the arena during the winter, please talk with any of our arena attendants. In the summer, make sure to enjoy the other facilities located on the same block.

Who operates the concession?

Hanna Minor Hockey holds a lease agreement with the Town of Hanna to operate the concession from October until the end of March every year.

How do I find out if there is any ice time available for a game or practise?

Inquire with arena staff or contact the Town Office.

Sometimes there is public skating added during the weekend. Why? And how do I find out?

When the minor hockey teams are out of town for games, that often leaves some time for private rentals.  If the ice doesn’t get rented, the Town will add FREE public skating.  You can find out if there are any additional weekend public skating times by phoning the arena at (403) 854-4177, view the Town of Hanna event calendar on our website, or check our Facebook page at

There is often extra public skating added during school vacation such as Christmas Break.

How can I advertise my business in the arena?

A variety of options are available in both the arena and curling rink. Ice advertising, wall signs and a sponsor for the supply of fuel for the resurfacer are some of the options. All the information you need to advertise your business, in the Hanna arena can be found in the application form.
