Ottawa hosted its first-ever stop on the Alex Burrows Tour dek hockey circuit from Apr. 26-28 at Rideau Sports Centre.

The season-opening competition of the Tour drew over 125 teams, mostly from the province of Quebec, where the sport enjoys its strongest following (and where the Tour’s other 5 stops take place).

Dek hockey is a 3-on-3 (plus goalies) version of ball hockey played on an outdoor rink-size surface with boards. RSC is Ottawa’s first dek hockey venue. Teams were competing for $50,000 worth of prizes across various divisions.
