Welcome to the Newcastle Memorial Arena Website

There couldn’t be a more vibrant time to be launching a website for our community arena. One of the most recognizable buildings in the Village of Newcastle, this historic building was officially opened as an indoor rink on February 26, 1951. As we launch this site in the year 2014, we are not only celebrating 63 years of community recreation, we are also celebrating one of our own “Hockey Heroes” - Tara Watchorn, a Newcastle resident who first laced up her hockey skates in this building at the age of 4. Tara brought recognition and honor to our community this year, as a team member of the 2014 Gold Medal Winning Canadian Olympic Women’s Hockey Team.
