What good is a giant frozen lake if you can't play hockey on it?
Join Rec Well for this annual pond hockey tradition! This year's tournament will be held on beautiful Lake Mendota! Play will begin Saturday, February 8 at 8am and the championship games will be played on Sunday, February 9. Registration opens on January 20 on IMLeagues.
History of the Pond Hockey Tournament:
For years before the event's eventual inception, PJ Connolly was one of many students expressing desire for an outdoor hockey tournament. During his senior year and as an employee of Rec Well (formerly Rec Sports), Connolly decided to do something about it. He and co-founder Josiah Zanghi organized meetings, planned every detail of the tournament, and created the rinks. The first annual Connolly Classic was held on February 8 and 9 on Lake Mendota in 2014.
Year after year, the tournament continues to grow into Connolly’s and Zanghi’s vision.
