About The Event

Give your skates a spruce up! Unsure about taking care of your skates, or do you have questions about the different parts? 

Bring your questions to our skate maintenance evening and we will take our skates apart, check and clean them and put them back together. 

Skate maintenance will take place 6:30 - 8 pm (ish).  We are happy for you to continue looking after your skates after this time, just be aware that our evening practise session runs from 7:30 - 9:30pm.

No need to bring your tools, you are welcome to use ours. If you don't have a skate tool though, we do recommend owning one as they are very useful! 

Once you have sorted your skates, you're welcome to stay for the evening practise session running until 9.30pm.  We do recommend popping your freshly maintained skates on, so if any adjustments need to be made, we are able to support you to do this.

Do I need to sign a waiver?

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.
