Rollin’ rollin’ rollin’
Roller Derby? Isn’t that the full contact sport played on quad roller skates on an oval track? Yes indeed. What’s more it’s suitable for women of all shapes, ages and backgrounds - including those of us who haven’t played sport since shivering through netball at school (you don’t even need to be able to roller skate to take part). The 15-week course teaches people everything they need to know about how to play roller derby, and all kit, including skates, helmets and protective pads, will be provided on a first-come first-served basis. The course is open to women aged 18+ and as well as being a super new way to get fit and have enormous fun, it’s also a great way to meet new people (who are all lovely to a fault). DP The course takes place each Sunday morning from 10am-12pm and starts on Sunday 3 February. It’s held at Walker Activity Dome, Wharrier Street, Newcastle. It is £6 per session (plus £1.50 for kit hire if needed).
