I want in!

If you live in (or near) Cambridge and the idea of skating around at high speed knocking other girls over, inventing a violent alter ego for yourself and doing it all in fishnets appeals, we understand. In fact, we encourage these impulses and we’d like to meet you.

If you think all this sounds ace, but you had the misfortune to be born male, then take heart – you can still be involved. We’re also recruiting referees to make sure we don’t elbow each other in the face (amongst other things), so we want to hear from you too.

If you think roller derby could be the sport for you, then here’s what you do:

Get in touch email us at info@rollerbillies.com. We’re happy to answer your questions, and we’d love to have you come and watch a training session.

Come and meet us: We can let you know when we’re training so you can come and see what it’s all about. We have potential new recruits coming to training most weeks. We’ll explain what we’re up to, answer any questions you have, and give you more information to take home. Roller derby is a full contact sport and although we’re very careful with beginners, you do skate at your own risk. Watching, however, is completely safe.

Come and skate with us: Once you’ve been to watch and decided you can’t resist the feel of the wheel, you can come to your first training session – for free! Be aware, you will need full protective gear before we’ll let you on the track. We have some kit we can loan you to start out with, and we’ll give you a full kit list when you meet us. We make sure anyone new is taught the basics and looked after, and we’ll assess your skills and make sure you’re doing drills you can participate in safely.

We take safety very seriously, and we will ask you to fill in a medical form and sign a disclaimer before you can skate. We’re also very serious about respect for one another and the ethics of our league, so all participating skaters will be asked to read and sign our code of conduct.

Whether you’re thinking HELL YES or um, I want to but I’m a bit scared, get in touch. We don’t bite.

Haven’t skated since about 15 years ago…..but i’m intrigued! Would love to pop along and see what the deal is! Currently living off mill road, so it’s a shame I didn’t find out about you guys until tesco had stepped in! Ah well. Hopefully see ya soon.

Saw you dudes at Pink Festival. Looks awesome, but likewise haven’t skated since I was a kid, and my skates are in CLIP. However, should come along to the fun skate for a laugh… think you have my details already! πŸ˜€

I haven’t done any skating for a few years, but it sounds like fun. I might come up to Ely and see what you get up to.

I am a blader originally but fancy turning my sights to quads. I am an experienced skater but don’t know the rules of the Derby. Done alot of half-pipe and street work but a bit too grown up for that now. Drop us a bell when you’re next recruiting. Would love to give it a go.

Chatted with one of you girls at NYE Salon Rouge last night; great stuff what you’re up to (the cupcake was nice too). I haven’t skated for years either but am interested to come and spy a session so let me know! x

Sounds like a wild ride, would love to try. Haven’t skated either in a few years, but like riding a bike. Always wanted to play football in high school but couldn’t cuz I was a girl. Now this is a way to let it out.

Hey Quad-Ophelia et al! It’s Nelly’s friend (black girl) that met you at Salon Rouge NYE… Sorry that I missed last week’s training session. However I was hoping that my daughter and I could come along and have a gander at some point? Are you in Cherry Hinton tomorrow?

It looks fantastic, however I am a tiny bit apprehensive as I literally haven’t been on skates since I was 6. Gulp.

Anyway toodle-pip! xx

23 03 2009

I’ve only been along to three training sessions so far, but am completely hooked! Where have you girls been all my life? Heres to spending the rest of it tearing up the rink in a blaze of green, gore and glory!!

7 09 2009

Wow…. Been to 2 sessions so far and although i’m aching and sore just from revisiting my youth on a pair of skates using muscles that have long time been out of use…. I have enjoyed every moment of it and I cant wait until i’m in the thick of it and experiencing the game as it is… Thanks Guys for having me!

Till next time!

I would love to join up. I would be a beginner but can skate. Are you taking on recruits?

22 02 2011

Ok, I’ll bite at the bait. I’ve seen one roller derby game in my lifetime and it’s
pretty neat. I’m pretty new to the area, I need to exercise but hate working
out unless it’s a really fun activity. I haven’t skated much in my time on
this planet, but I’ve got decent balancing skills.

I’d love to come by and watch a practice/training session. Where and when do
you practice?

I skate with Haunted City Rollers in Derby. I’m pre minimum skills but pretty stable on my feet. Problem is I’m home for most of the summer and as much as I love my girls, Derby is a long way for Derby practice! Any chance I can come and skate with all of you lovelies? And if so, what day is best for me to attend on?
