For our incoming visitors that have not been to Pelham or our new facility before, we have been asked some questions as to what amenities exist and what the surrounding area contains.

WELCOME TO PELHAM ONTARIO

and the 2019 Niagara Local/House League Regional Silver Stick Tournament

Here is a little bit about our home location and town specifically related to our incoming hockey visitors....


The Meridian Community Centre opened for hockey in September of 2018, and is the home to two new full sized ice surfaces. Games for our tournament will take place in both of these rinks, as well as some games in Welland and in Port Colborne which are both easy to get to from our base in Pelham.

In Pelham, we have two Zambonis at our service, as well as large spacious dressing rooms - which both serve to make our tournament games comfortable and on time.  The team benches are super sized as well which is always appreciated by players and coaches.  We have large screens in the lobby which indicate dressing room assignments for your teams to check on upon arrival for each game.  The MCC also has credible wifi service for our guests, and the players will be able to use filtered water fountains to fill their bottles adjacent to the bench before or during games.

Please also visit the Town of Pelham website about the Meridian Community Centre located here:

Our facility includes a walking track you may utilize, a concession area with meals, drinks and snacks, and a licensed servery upstairs in the spectator area serving beverages which can be taken to your seat in the arena.

Note - The facility also has a Town of Pelham receptionist/host in the main lobby should you require any answers for your questions.

SURROUNDING AREA:

Within walking distance of the arenas and the Meridian Community Centre are numerous brand name restaurants, coffee shops and food "quick-serve" locations. In town, which is about a one minute drive, there are also more national chain brand businesses as well that you will be familiar with. 
We have numerous sit down locally owned restaurants - with some outstanding food and beverages for your consumption - that can serve your team players and adults should a team meal be required and we will be providing further information about some of these locations in your team's welcome package.
We hope your team finds the opportunity to visit one of our local restaurants - and please make sure to tell them that you are visiting from out of town while participating in the Silver Stick tournament!

There is also a full sized sports store in sight of the facility as well as a pro shop inside of the facility should you have any issues with equipment & hockey items.

PARKING:

The parking lot will be full often - please be ready for this.  There will be signs posted for overflow parking and street parking regulations.  Be courteous and please do not block entrances, walkways and access points with your convenient parking. 

NEED MORE HELP OR INFO ?????

Should your team require anything while here, whether it be an item, advice on where to go, or searching for an answer with regards to the facility and tournament/game operations, please find one of our volunteers who will be identifiable in Silver Stick apparel / nametags. 

The tournament office will be located on the second floor - between the rinks - in the Kinsmen Room.  Please come and check in / sign in upon arrival and to get the gamesheets handled. 

If your first game is at the Welland Main Arena - there will also be a check-in desk with Silver Stick volunteers there to help you and your team!

Good luck to all teams this weekend - and we hope you enjoy your trip to Pelham Ontario!  We built this so that people would come !
