Description : Bradford has a strong hockey tradition, from Minor Hockey and its volunteers, to Old-Timers League teams. But if there ever was a "golden era" of Bradford hockey, it must have been the 1950s. That was when, in the wake of the devastation of Hurricane Hazel volunteers raised funds to build the Bradford & District
Community Centre - now known as the "Old Arena". The arena first opened for the season in 1956. In those days, Intermediate and Seniors' Hockey ruled the rink, with men's teams drawing the crowds. In 1975/76 the team became the "Bradford Blues". In 1986/87 the team became the Bradford Bulls.
