It's not ideal but it works.

Refs rooms definitely vary from rink to rink the one in Slough isn't even the size of my bathroom and the aforementioned Oxford one which is a bathroom while in Bracknell for EPL games we usually occupy the away juniors dressing room.
That's some third world shiiiit

I've played in rinks with no gates at the penalty boxes & only 1 on each bench, you had to walk down 5 stairs or so into this addition to go to the dressing rooms lol ice had lines painted on it for curling as well which was new to me at the time

I also remember a rink, I believe it was in Baddeck, Nova Scotia (Home of Alexander Graham Bell) and the dressing rooms were upstairs, outside the dressing rooms was the seating area which was all upstairs in a pressbox like thing, you go out of the room and walk down 25-30 stairs or so to the ice bahahaha easily the most unusual rink I ever played in
