 Roller Derby in Sydney

Roller Derby is 'a dynamic, all inclusive, full contact womens's (and men's) team sport striving for empowerment, athleticism and, above all, fun'. Before you get started you'll need rollerskates (quads) that are suited to roller derby (and we are.. definitely not referring to your white starfire skates!). Co-ed bouts are increasingly popular and there is also a growing number of junior roller derby leagues in Australia.

Rollerskating Sydney runs lessons (by appointment) not far away from Luna Park at a great location called Bradfield Plaza!
