Sunderland Smackems seeking skaters

Roller Derby

Sunderland Smackems, the first roller derby league in the city, are currently recruiting skaters of all abilities.

Roller derby is a contact sport played by two teams of five members roller skating in the same direction around a track. Game play consists of a series of short match-ups (jams) in which both teams designate a scoring player (the jammer) who scores points by lapping members of the opposing team.

Practice is on Fridays from 9-10pm at Castleview Community and Fitness Centre.

The centre has a limited stock of rental quad skates anyone coming along is advised  to bring safety pads and a helmet. The session costs £4.50 per person with an extra 50p charge for rental skates.
