We skate all year round on Sunday mornings from 10am to 1pm. (Sometimes 12noon if the hall is not available.)  We welcome new skaters at all levels of ability on both inline and quad skates. Take lessons, skate on your own, play Rollerhoc, try the Lap Ladder, the choice is yours. Always check the events page for exact times before travelling.

  • Like to play Rollerhoc?
  • Used to play roller hockey?
  • Never played hockey before?

Many skaters would like to play a recreational game that does not have high demands or insist on advanced skill levels to play. Rollerhoc has been devised to encompass a wide range of abilities. In skating terms you need to be capable of stopping-just-a-bit otherwise take lessons first. Still not sure you could handle this game in case you weren't "good" enough. Well read more about Rollerhoc to put your mind at rest.

We play at the Arc Sports Hall, Cale Uni, Glasgow on Sunday mornings. See details of times on the Events page.

Rollerhoc is fun

Have thought about playing Rollerhoc?  Have you even heard about it? I suspect not. The Rollerhoc website tells you all you need to know. Any skater that's capable of stopping can have a go. You do not need to be a "good" skater to take part.

Skate London

This is the hub of skating in UK. Centred mainly round the Serpentine Road in Hyde Park you will find skaters of all levels from beginners to the highly proficient.

Skate London

Many of the skate schools operate here. Freestyle is very evident, check the number of cones in use. London also has the most successful street skates to choose from.

LFNS (London Friday Night Skate), The Sunday Stroll, The Easy Saturday Skate and Skate London on Wednesday nights. Big choice reflecting the numbers and depth of interest in skating in the capital.

Roller Derby

Roller Derby

Now well established in Scotland with eight all women teams. If you've got the attitude why not give it a go. Roller Derby is accredited with leading the revival of roller skates, long time popular for artistic, jamming, disco, and general indoor skating.

Where do you skate?

Wondering where to skate is one of the new skater's greatest concern.


We need to find smooth surfaces for tiny wheels to roll over. Our where-to-skate page lists current places suitable for skating but we need to add lots more particularly in areas that so far are not represented.

Please, if you know of a good skating area, add your comments below and we'll check them out.
