SK8’s FAQ’s

Am I going to hurt myself?

If you are new to skating you might have the odd fall. The most likely outcome of a fall is a hurt wrist because it is a natural reaction to put your hands out when you fall. For this reason we provide wrist guards free of charge to anyone who wants them. In our experience these help lessen the pain and risk of injury if you fall.

What kind of hire skates do you have?

We have lots of roller boots, or quads, ranging from junior size 7 to adult size 13 (uk sizes).

Can I bring my own skates?

Yes, you can bring your own skates to the roller sessions but you must ensure that they are in a safe working condition, with non-marking wheels and brakes.

How long can I skate for?

As long as you like! Once you have paid for your session you are welcome to stay as long as you are having fun, up to the end of the session.

What music will be playing?

Roller disco sessions are about having a good time so expect to hear disco classics, electro grooves, hiphop beats and soulful treats. Even if discos aren’t your thing, you will still have a great time on skates. We have a song request system via our Facebook page.

What do I have to wear?

Whatever you like! Why not something colourful and bright? After skating for a little while you will probably get quite warm so you won’t need winter coats.
