About The Event
We are thrilled to be adding an hour to our weekly roller disco. Friday Night Social is our weekly wind down and provides an alcohol-free space for adults to chat and skate in Leeds
What is a Friday Night Skate Social?
Come and skate, have a chat, meet other skaters in the community and unwind! Our skate marshalls are here to ensure everyone has a great time and skate safely.
The wheel library will be available at this session to allow you to try different wheels on your skates.
Skate hire (including protective pads) available - please ensure you purchase a separate Skate hire ticket for each person requiring skates.
Hire skates are recalled at 22:15 and session end is 22:20 to allow us to clear the venue by 22:30.
I have never roller skated before - is FNS for me?
We welcome folks of all skill levels, including folks with very little or no experience. Our skate marshalls are more than happy to give you tips to get started, but are not able to provide any kind of tuition beyond this. Please come to Skate class on Sundays if you'd like a better breakdown of movements.
What size hire skates do I need?
We recommend you ask for your regular shoe size. If you try skates on and they're not right for you, we are happy to swap them. Our skate hire is available in full sizes only, from UK 3 - UK 15. You no longer need to book a specific ticket to tell us what size you require.
I have a Skate Pass, do I still need to book?
Yes, please still book your spot for FNS, and have your digital Skate Pass ready to show at check-in. Please remember that if you are not able to make it, our cancellation policy does still apply.
Can I bring my own refreshments?
Yes of course. We want to keep this skate space alcohol free, so ask you do not bring alcohol to consume on the premises, including the car park. If you bring your own water bottle, we are able to refill this for you for free. We also have a small selection of soft drinks for sale. Should you spill your drink, please let a marshall know straight away. Please make sure you are not eating and drinking while you skate, that includes chewing gum.
Can I wear my own headphones?
While we do our best to cater a wide mix of music that will suit most people, we appreciate that you may prefer your own music. It is fine to wear your own headphones, however you must be extra vigilant and fully aware of folks around you. If we feel you are not being considerate of other skaters or you miss instructions from our skate marshalls, we will ask you to remove them.
I wear inline skates, can I come?
Yup. We welcome all wheely-booted folks.
I don't identify as a girl, can I come?
Absolutely! Roller Girl Gang was founded and is run by women, with the support of our fantastic volunteer team, to provide better access to roller skating for all genders and identities, especially marginalised folks.
What do I do if I have a problem?
Please speak to one of our skate marshall volunteers, who wear purple t-shirts. If they are unable to help you, they will find our lead skate marshall, who will do their best to assist. We have a Respect policy in place to keep everyone feeling as safe and supported as possible. In case of accidents, we always have at least one trained first aider in the room.
Can I collect my shop order from FNS?
You absolutely can, providing you have made the order with sufficient time for the team to plan this. You can contact the shop directly on +44 7479 430404 .
How do I find the venue?
The Ramgarhia Sikh Sports Centre is near Sheepscar Interchange on Chapeltown road. Drive in through the ornate gates and up the slope to the sports hall at the back of the site.
There is plenty of free parking outside the front of the sports centre. Bus stops are right outside the gate.
Please wait in the hallway outside the sports hall until invited in, as we will be finishing the earlier class.
