Want to be a Wench?

Our current New Skaters course is currently underway, but you can always register your interest for our next course!

Simply email PRW_join_us@hotmail.com and our dedicated new skater committee will give you all the details.

As well as skating you can also support us by deciding to become a referee or non-skating official. Get in touch via our contact page or Facebook page if you would like to be involved with Hampshire’s first roller derby league!

Requirements to join:

Skating experience is an advantage, but not essential, most of us were total beginners! So long as you have the passion and dedication, and are tough enough to take a few falls, you can be a Wench (or a Scurvy Dog!). In order to compete, you must be 18+. The Wenches are an all female league, but guys can join us as referees & Non Skating Officials

Skaters & Referees will need to get their own pair of quad skates (refs can skate on blades), and full protective gear (helmet, knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards and mouth guard.) Talk to any member of the team for recommendations as to what skates & gear are going to be best for you, and which skate shops we love!

If you don’t have your own equipment and want to give it a go before getting your own skates, we have spare skates & protective gear which you can borrow.
