Skateboarding courses at Roller City

Following on from the success of our BIG Summer Skate Jams earlier this year, Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council has teamed up with ABC Skateboarding to give local youngsters the chance to try out the newest Olympic sport.


The first six-week course for beginners aged 5+ starts on Thursday 9 January, 4.30pm at Roller City, Campus West and costs £54. Skateboards, pads and helmets will be provided for use during the sessions.

Further courses for beginners and improvers will follow throughout the year.

The council's Sports Partnership Officer, Milan Johnston, said:

Our Skate Jam sessions in the summer proved to be extremely popular with residents so we're very excited to be able to offer these courses with ABC Skateboarding, especially as the sport will make its debut at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

It will be an excellent opportunity to learn some boarding skills as well as impress your friends with all the lingo and who knows, maybe we'll discover a future Olympic champion!
