Skate Asia is one of the world largest team recreation skating competitions which tour around Asian cities in every summer.
The competition started in 1989 in Hong Kong by the founder of ISIAsia, Mr. Ted Wilson. Though there were very few ice rinks in Asia at the time, the event managed to attract 520 skaters from the Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, U.A.E., Australia, Canada & United States.
In 1999, Malaysia held the second Skate Asia and the competition is then being held annually and has been toured around Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Manila, Taipei, Shenzhen, Hangzhou etc.
After 20 years of development, skating member rinks of ISIAsia now cover most Asian cities and we believe the Skate Asia event will continue to grow and keep all Asian skaters connected in this beautiful sport.
