Wakey Wheeled Cats
Wakefield’s only Roller Derby team, the Wakey Wheeled Cats are an all-female, over 18s team formed in May 2009.
Roller derby is a fast-paced, full contact sport played on a flat oval track, and the fastest growing sport in the country.
You don’t need to be able to skate to join us, as we teach everything you need to know to be safe and effective on your skates and we have seperate training sessions for both beginners and experienced skaters.
The Cats provide a safe athletic space for local women and have grown massively over the past 5 years, progressing from 6 original members to currently 45. Potentially there will be two teams within the club by the end of next year.
