Rollergirls 2nd Birthday
Carly Nichols who is Assistant Manager in the very successful Lettings Department of Robert Oulsnam & Company is also a roller skater in her spare time and a member of the Central City Roller Girls.
The Central City Rollergirls have just celebrated their second birthday. We were formed in November 2007 by guys and girls who were passionate about skating and more importantly Roller Derby. (Roller Derby is an all female full contact sport on skates with the guys kindly refereeing!)
During the last year we have been extremely busy, we have had closed and open public bouts home and away and also have taken part in 2 major UK tournaments. We’ve won some and lost some, but for me the most important thing is being able to play and skate with some amazing people all over the UK.
The biggest accolade though is our skaters being asked to guest skate for other teams. The weekend of the 21st November saw Hustle’ her, Hope ‘N’ Gory and Nancy Spinatra guest skate for the Lincolnshire Bombers- what an honour!
We have held a weekend skating coaching school called Grange Hell and invited 2 amazing roller derby skaters over from the States, and next year we are hosting a whole Bank Holiday weekend of skating tuition with more incredible skaters from the USA.
2010 promises to be an exciting year for the Central City Rollergirls with more bouts scheduled and more fundraising for charities and I cant wait to be a part of it!
