Derby Nights – 30th March 2024

On Saturday 30th March, Auld Reekie Roller Derby’s All Stars take on Norwich’s Norfolk Broads for the first time in history! Both teams are well-established, experienced and ranked highly in the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association rankings, so the game is set to be a nail-biter.

Roller derby is a fast paced, full contact sport played on quad roller skates and Edinburgh’s top team are now in their 15th year.

The game takes place at Dalkeith Community Campus and the club is hoping to attract a lively crowd for their inaugural early evening slot – named Derby Nights. The doors open at 4:30pm with the first whistle at 5pm.

Captain Caitlin O’Carroll is confident about the game, “We have refined our training focuses and intensity for this season with a view to climbing the European rankings and can’t wait to put all the amazing things our 2024 roster have been working on over the last few months into action.”

The event is a double header with the second game seeing challenger teams from friendly rivals Auld Reekie and Glasgow Roller Derby vying for victory.

Alongside the main event of skating, expect the usual interval games and raffles as well as  local vendors and a chance to buy team merchandise. Grab a burrito from Bonnie Burrito and enjoy homemade cakes from the cake stand!
