Unicycle Hockey in Hong Kong
We have been playing unicycle hockey in Hong Kong since 2000 but we are always looking for more people to join us. Even if you have never ridden a unicycle before and would like to try and don’t have your own unicycle, you are welcome. We have spare unicycles for you to try and we’ll give you some tips to get you rolling. There will likely be other people learning, while regulars play unicycle hockey – the most fun sport in Hong Kong.
For more information, please call Martin on 9203-1505 or Rob on 9283-3757
Where and When
We meet every Friday from 8.10pm to 10:00pm at the YMCA King’s Park Centenary Centre in Jordan.
It is free the first time! After that we ask for a $80 donation to help cover the costs of the rink. If you don’t have a unicycle we have some spares for beginners.
Join us afterwards for a bite to eat and a beer in Temple Street!
From Jordan MTR, take exit B2 and walk/ride along Jordan Road to the big junction (about 400 m).
Diagonally opposite, you can see the big climbing wall that is part of the
YMCA centre. Cross the junction, and the (small) main entrance is about
30 metres along the main road.

You should wear light sports clothes, and bring a change of clothes, it’s real exercise! There are full changing rooms, lockers and showers available.
We have spare unicycles for beginners and there are hockey sticks available to borrow from YMCA.
Buying hockey sticks
We use ice hockey or roller-blade hockey sticks for playing which cost around HK$500. Ice-hockey sticks can be bought in Sham Shui Po at the Dragon Centre . Hockey sticks designed for roller-blade hockey can be bought at the YMCA King’s Park Centenary Centre (22 Gascoigne Rd, Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon, Tel: 2782-6682)
Unicycle hockey rules
Beginners should concentrate on the simple safety rules (cover the end of your stick, no ‘high stick’ no ‘SUB’ (stick under wheel)) the rest of the rules will follow naturally as you get the hang of it. If you are interested –
