We welcome skaters with all types of skates however the skates must be clean and safe. Also, you should bear in mind that our coaches are trained to teach roller skating on “Quad” skates.
Skate Hire – We have a limited range of skates for hire on a first come first serve basis for £1 per session (“White or Black” skates are usually for members who have obtained Basic Skills 2 or at the discretion of the coaches)
Buying Skates – A good pair of roller skates can be expensive. If you are a beginner, we would suggest that you do not buy skates until you have been to several classes and are sure you want to continue. Please read our guide to buying skates, then speak to a coach before you buy as it can be an expensive mistake if you buy the wrong pair.
Padding – For safety reasons you may want to wear padding. We recommend knee pads and wrist guards.
