Rauma, although a small town, has its own professional ice hockey team called Lukko (“lock” in English)!
You ask what Rauma men do on Wednesdays or Saturdays? They go watch the game or take their kids to play ice hockey.
What do women do? Well, every 7th Rauma person participates at the art and handicraft courses of the local Adult Education Center Rauman Kansalaisopisto. Most of the fans of the fine arts are women.
Lukko plays in the Finnish Liiga, the top tier of Finnish ice hockey.
The club was founded in 1936 as the Rauma Wood saw mill’s league. The home icehall is Kivikylä Areena, which has a capacity of 4700 spectators.
Lukko has won the Finnish championship once, in 1963.
Since 2011, Lukko has had a team in the Women’s Baseball Championship League (Superpesis).
