We are excited to announce a new project to support getting more people rolling. It is a long term goal of ours to lower the barriers to access roller skating as much as possible and thanks to a Sport England grant as part of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee Activity Fund, we have an amazing opportunity to help

Roller Girl Gang are pleased to offer free roller skate lessons for women in the BD8 and surrounding areas as part of our Roll Forward project

The roll forward project aims to remove barriers to roller skating for those who would otherwise not be able to afford to access the sport. 

Our Sports England Funding will allow us to run taster sessions and classes in Manningham, Bradford during term time. These sessions are for women and female-identifying participants only.

Classes and taster sessions are free to access for local women.  If you are outside BD8 or its surrounding areas, we are happy for you to access the programme if there is space. We will add you to the waiting list. There will be a nominal fee of £5 if you are outside the area, and do not fit any of the qualifying criteria.  Please register for further details.

Participants who attend a specific number of classes will receive a pair of skates and protective equipment to allow them to continue skating once the project has ended. 

The first taster session will be at Womanzone   in Bradford on June 24th 2022 at 11am - 1pm. 

Participants will be able to try roller skating using our hire skates and protective gear. 

Our free classes will run from Manningham Sports centre - these are 1 hour sessions covering all the roller skate fundamental skills to get you started on your roller skating journey.
