The Roller Derby

Hey guys!

How many of you have heard of the roller derby? When I ask people what they think of it people refer to a load of girls in skirts roller skating xD. My boyfriend even said its tarty, so some reputation the roller derby has! Hahahaha!

I'm going to train with the Lincolnshire Bombers next week. Pretty nervous as I'm clumsy and going to most definatley resemble bambi with roller skates on but if I love it, which I'm guessing I will, I'll train as best I can. There are a couple of girls whom I know in the Bombers and they started out very clumsy too and not so smooth so if they can do it I'm sure I can too.

I think these girls look incredibly cool in their knee high socks and skates and they are all so friendly .

Well gunna see how it goes! Have to train for eight weeks straight and pass my basic skills test before I can pick out my skate name and get my uniform etc!

Re: The Roller Derby

Ah awesome!
I got myself some Aggressive Skates (Attachment) just before the winter so haven't really been able to use them too much. Going to whip 'em out in the summer.

Re: The Roller Derby

Lovely! How long have you been skating for Kris? I recall you got these out at LAN I think?

The last time I wore skates they had Barbie on them so I'm gunna see how this goes! After my training session next week if I really like the sport I'm going to buy my own skates, wrist guards, knee pads, elbow pads and helmet. I think it will cost me a bomb! xD

Re: The Roller Derby

I've got that tattooed part, now to actually become a skilled skater xD. This is going to take a lot of time and effort but I'm willing. The girls told me to meet them next week wearing a baggy t-shirt, skirt and tights and to expect getting a bruised up ass! Lol!

Re: The Roller Derby

I love roller derby Used to skate back when I was a teenager, I went everywhere with them, played roller hockey in the park alot.

Hope you enjoy it, if there was a club around mine I'd have signed up without a second thought

Re: The Roller Derby

I would love to do something totally outrageous like this But first off, there isn't any sort of club or whatever to do so where I live :/ Secondly, I never even owned a pair of my own skates; when I used to go round my friends house she went on her rollerskates and let me borrow some of hers...and I wasn't partically good at it. I couldn't even get up lol. And when I fell done it wasn't all graceful and elegant like Bambi lol.

Anyway good luck with it and hope you have a great time with it as it seems quite fun and a great opportunity
