A crooked stick, a puck and a frozen pond - that’s all one ever really needed for the best sport in the world. Since on the Ritten mountain there’s always been plenty of all of it, it should be of no surprise that in 1925, 50 years after the world’s very first ice hockey in 1875, this fabulous sport finally conquered our hearts. Once winter settled in on our little plateau mountain, hockey buffs would come together at the local pond Wolfsgrubner See. At last in 1928, the Sport Club Renon was founded. And yes, the rest is history.
Our success story begins in the year 1929, when our „Buam“ (local dialect for “boys”) participate in the Italian Championship for the first time. Soon the pond would no longer be enough and shortly after World War II in 1975 Ritten celebrates its first title. The team wins the Italian Division B Championship and moves to Division A, the highest league in Italy, where it will remain for the following 2 years.
