Are you seeking a fun way to get fit? Stay fit? Did you know that Roller Skating burns more than 700 calories per hour?

Sound interesting?

We are a newly forming group of ladies who are preparing for competition level roller derby skating bouts.

We practice 2 hours a week at local leisure centres in the Birmingham / Redditch area.

From September 2007, we invite all new starters to our open practice on Saturdays. This is our basic skills practice and your opportunity to come along, check it out, take part and see if this is the sport for you.

Sounds Great, O0, We have some old farts on this forum, that can skate,  ( years ago it was our main entrainment on week ends,) but I think they are little past it today, ( their bones are brittle now so,???). .... Good luck with your venture.. O0, from another old fart.  ^-^
Growing old is mandatory..........Growing up is optional
