Roller Girl Gang was established in January 2015 by Len & Mel.
Roller Girl Gang's mission is to spread the enjoyment and love for roller skating by making the sport more accessible through events, workshops, classes and collaboration with like-minded people around the world. We also skate as often as possible; outdoors when the Yorkshire weather allows!
We learned to roller skate by playing roller derby with Hot Wheel Roller Derby - the only team to skate without stoppers! Thanks to John for a giving us excellent foundation skate skills. Both of us are primary school teachers and mums, and it became increasingly tricky to balance roller derby and real life.
The roller skating had to continue though, so we skated wherever possible, skate parks, roller discos and outdoors. After attending Skate Love Barcelona roller dance festival, we decided to became British Roller Sports Federation (BRSF) qualified instructors and now we teach anyone who wants to learn!
In early 2019, we launched the search for a team of Gangsters, who represent the spirit of Roller Girl Gang across the world. Our Gangsters are positive people, who make time for skating in their busy lives, and encourage others to give roller skating a go too!
We are now proudly sponsored by Better Bearings, who recognise the work that we do to make roller skating as accessible as possible.
