Wow how exciting. Angel13, no worries about being rusty, I was as well when I put my skates back on for the first time in decades. And gemgem81 that's excellent. I only finished my orange star in Jan, so between us we can keep up our skills and learn new ones.. I have no idea how I am going to do this but I think getting like minded people together for a skate is the first step... Angel13, be warned derby is addictive ... Gemgem81 I live in Abu dhabi, so about an hour from Dubai... Also I saw a derby girl in our building yesterday... no.88 ... Couldn't read her name but it was something punch... If you read this... We want you too... Will try and send you both my email privately....edited by sue72 on 14/06/2012edited by sue72 on 14/06/2012

Derby will be one of the things i will miss about home so im so glad I just read your post... see you soon hopefully...what field you working in over there?? and what area are you living in? I still have no clue where i should be aiming for, I like to be in the middle of everything really :-)
Hi Ladies, I have just arrived here from Australia. I played Roller Derby and Roller Soccer back home and love to skate. Just wondering if anyone else here roller skates and would be interested in going for a roll somewhere... also Im interested in finding anyone who would be interested in participating in a roller derby league in the UAE... I understand that some traditional aspects of the sport would need to be modified but Im keen to get one started... Just a bit of work to do to get it off the ground.... You don't need to know how to skate. I can teach you.. you just need quad roller skates and some protective gear. Please contact me if your interested or have any advice on this issue or just want to go for a skate. Im in Abu Dhabi.Sue72
