Ever wanted to play roller derby? Well now’s your chance! We’re starting our new beginner’s course on 3 February 2019. This is your opportunity to put on some skates, learn a new sport, and start your adventure as a member of Newcastle Roller Girls!

It’s a 15-week course, starting on 3 February 2019 and taking place every Sunday from 10am to noon at the Walker Activity Dome, Wharrier Street, Walker, Newcastle, NE6 3BR. Sessions cost £6 each, or can be paid for in advance at 5 for £25. We can supply all the kit you need, all you need to bring is enthusiasm (and ID if you look younger than 18!)

To sign up for the course, join the event on Facebook – that’s where we’ll be posting all the information, and where you can ask us questions. Don’t have a Facebook account? Email us at recruitment(at)newcastlerollergirls(dot)co(dot)uk

Hope to see you on skates soon!
