9. Try roller derby for free 25.4.!

Tampere Roller Derby and Tampere Rollin’ Bros are once again hosting popular Open Practice event – for free! You don’t have sign up in advance, just show up, try a bit of skating on derby skates and get to know our leagues! The event is on Monday 25.4. at 8 pm at Kauppi Sports Center.

The Open Practice starts with a quick info and a warm-up session. After that we hop on skates! You don’t need any skating experience or your own gear. All you need to bring with you is yourself, clothes suitable for sports, a water bottle and indoor sneakers.

If you want to pursue your derby dreams after the Open Practices, you can sign up for our next Beginner Course. More details and enrollment coming soon online, stay tuned! For Non-Skating Officials the Beginner Course is free of charge.

What is roller derby?
Roller derby is a quick-paced full-contant sport played on an oval track on quad roller skates. Both teams have five skaters on the track at once, one jammer and four blockers. Jammers earn one point for their team every time they pass an opposing blocker legally. Blockers play defense and offense, trying to stop the opposing jammer and helping their own jammer pass the opposing blockers at the same time. Each game has seven referees and up to 12 nonskating officials.

Our leagues stand against racism, sexism, homo- and transfobia and bullying.
Come as you are! See you soon!

WHERE: Kauppi Sports Center, Kuntokatu 17, Tampere
WHEN: Monday 25th April at 8 pm
