What is Roller Derby?
Good question! Check out our page all about roller derby.

When can I start?
Every month (usually the second Monday) we have a “Fresh Meat Night” to invite anyone over 21 to come try out roller derby. Whether you’ve skated before or are brand new, come check it out!

Where do you train?
The Dubai Roller Derby league currently train twice a week in Al Wasl, Dubai
Mondays are REC Team night practice (for recreational DRD members and newbies in from Fresh Meat Nights – which is open to anyone who has skated with us) 8:00pm-9:00pm, and Wednesdays are for the Competitive Team 7:30pm-9:30pm.

Do I need my own skates and gear?
We have skates and gear that we rent out on a first come, subject to the availability of sizes and on a first serve basis.

How much do the sessions cost?
We’re all volunteers and need to defray the cost of the rental space, so the fees are AED 50 per session and AED 20 for gear/skates rental (though you’ll get their second session free) for up to the end of their first two months. It’s AED 175 a month thereafter.

Do you have classes for children?
Unfortunately, we don’t offer skating lessons for children. We are looking into starting a junior league sometime in the future, though!

Where else do you guys skate?
We also skate socially on the weekends and train off-skates. Check out our facebook for up-to-date events and DRD socials around Dubai.

I love Dubai Roller Derby! Where can I buy my own gear and skates?
Yay! Unfortunately, we don’t have a distributor here (yet!) but you can order your gear and skates from the roller derby stores all over the world, most will deliver to the UAE. A lot of DRD girls like the Fresh Meat packages from Bruised Boutique and we have also ordered stuff from Roller Girl Skates. Rollergirl.ca has some great resources on choosing the right gear for you.
