gotta question about homemade rink

hey im just curious about what you would use to make a homemade rink. im not asking this for ice, for road/street. what do you guys use for boards, and netting. do you use netting or like chicken wire or what?

boards: buy any large sheet of wood and cut it down to 2 1/2 feet tall so it keeps the water in (but only buy it if you're building your rink on an incline/decline) otherwise use snow (if your building the rink on a flat surface)

netting: increase the height of your boards or orientate the net so that you're not shooting at the house

When the city built a local outdoor roller hockey rink, they paved it so it's higher in the center, sort of like they would do for a street. That way when it rains, the water drains off towards the sides instead of creating puddles all over.

I'm totally slow wid ya.

you might want to go to the local ice rink and inspect the boards there they are usually modular and it might give you an idea on how to make what you are looking for.

good luck

the outdoor rinks here have treated 2x2's as well as 2x4's put up vertically and then have the plastic runners around the bottom (like the indoor rinks do) so the wood stays fairly protected. and if you're gonna do the whole cement base, i am incredibly jealous. whether or not you slope the cement like a poster stated should be pretty irrelevant because the amount of water you put down after playing on it should find its natural level and not have too many peaks and valleys provided the initial flooding was high enough.

if you decide not to use the 2x2 or 2x4's, you can go buy large sheets of baseboard and double up on it so that it's at least an inch thick and just cut them down to the size you feel you need for your boards.
