Who are we and What do we do?

The DMU Roller society is a community focused on making roller skating big again and getting people excited about all styles of skating. Whether you've never been on wheels before or you're an absolute pro all skill levels are welcome.

We have limited numbers of skates available to rent on practice nights for £2.50 per session or you can feel free to bring your own pair.

We plan to start regular skate sessions at the de montfort SU building in the function rooms. We will have sessions for all members of all skill levels on all kinds of skates, as well as beginners sessions for those of you who don't feel comfortable learning on your own. We will have a few experienced skaters to help you learn and pick up the basics. we will not charge for these beginner sessions however, we will still be charging £2.50 for skate rental if you need to borrow a pair. Don't worry if you stumble and fall a few times we all had to learn the hard way!

When will we be starting meetings?

We will officially begin meetings at the SU building in function rooms 1 and 2. The start date for our regular all skill level meeings is the tuesday 2nd of november 2021 from 18:00 to 20:00. We will also start hosting our beginner sessions in the same place every thursday beginning  the 4th of november 2021 betwen 18:00 to 20:00!

"I want to buy my own skating gear what should I get?"

While we can not recommend the exact skates to get if you wish to buy your own, you can feel free to message us via Instagram or our email and we will be happy to help you understand the types of skates and components you should look at for your specific style. we also have skate buying guides so you know what to look out for when buying skates!

We all know skating sounds pretty scary to learn and is a little goofy to see but trust us, once you're on wheels you really won't want to get off!

If you have any questions about our society or about skating and skate hardware feel free to message us through the platforms above and happy skating everybody!
