Weekly NewsletterEvery Thursday afternoon, we package up the most-read and trending RiotACT stories of the past seven days and deliver straight to your inbox..
You will need quad roller skates (suitable for derby, not artistic/figure skates), a helmet, knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards and a mouth guard. Some of this gear may be available for loan (except mouthguards of course). If you have your own gear, cover the hard caps on the knee and elbow pads with felt or hockey tape. Contact us if you need gear advice.
We’ve also answered all the things we hear from people who’d like to do derby but think they can’t. (Mostly: No, you’re not too old/skinny/fat/short/tall/unfit/unco to join us!)
