Champaign-Urbana's roller hockey court

This weekend i visited my special lady who just took a job over in Champaign-Urbana. While exploring the town we happened upon the most glorious of sites-- a full sized roller hockey court!

200x80. Full dasher boards. Penalty and team boxes. Damn i wish this thing was in Bloomington!

Saturday night I even heard a rumor that a few people in town had played before. Next time I'm over there I'm gonna dig a little deeper, but could a new Illinois club be in the cards? I hope!

    I'm guessing there was a club that played locally (in C-U), but never traveled to tournaments so they slowly died out over time. Hopefully they pick it back up again!

  3. Do you know where this was/is? I know an outdoor court maintained by the university was demolished and replaced with basketball courts... I was hoping this still exists though. I've got a group of people wanting play, everything to build mallets, now we just need a place to play. This would be perfect, but I've never seen it. If you remember, where was this? P.S. there's been a few groups of people who've played off and on in CU, but it's always died. We're trying to bring it back and keep it going this time though!
