    Ice hockey in Tunisia

    Found this:
    "The Blue Ice - Yasmine Hammamet: Spread over three floors and is home to a games room, ice cream parlour, coffee shop, self-service restaurant, fast-food restaurant, as well as the main attraction, Tunisia's first ever ice rink, which can accommodate up to one hundred skaters in a single session.

    During the day the ice rink offers training sessions to those who wish to learn to ice skate, or those just wanting to perfect their style. It is open to adults and children alike."

    Anyone know more about hockey in Tunisia?

    Tunisia Ice Hockey team

    Hi,

    I'm Ihab AYED, in charge of the Tunisian Ice hockey federation.

    I would like to inform you that the team is under construction. We have now 12 players and a goal keeper.

    All those players are tunisian.

    The tunisian ice hockey federation will be officially created before december 2009.

    We have a small rink in Tunisia, in Hammamed, but it's not an officiel size.

    I will present you the team, with the different tunisian players in a couple a weeks.

    I would like to thanks the Algerian Inline and Ice hockey association for their support. they help me to get in contact with many tunisian players around Europe.

    Feel free to send me an email for further information.

    Regards,

    Ihab AYED

    I suspect the Tunisian federation will release their roster at some point before the tournament.

    Reported on NToIH that Tunisia is to play their first game. They look to be going the same route as Algeria, with a team based in France. Perhaps they will play each other. As Algeria has found, it is a long way from having a domestic set up, IIHF membership and an IIHF qualified national team. Good luck to them.

    Here is a news from february where ATHG president Ihab Ayed already talks about the game being planned. It also mentions about an ice rink being build as part of a shopping mall and leisure center just outside Tunis which would also include an hotel. The NT would hopefully be based there from next year on when the complex open. I found a forum talking about this complex. There are some pictures showing works got started but it looks a bit deserted.
