Why Did You Start Roller Derby?
I had been studying alongside my full-time job and knew that when my course finished I was gonna have ALL THE SPARE TIME and therefore needed a suitable hobby / boyfriend. The hobby was easier to find. I went along with a friend to Swindon roller derby, discovered I could not skate but love love loved it anyway and then got involved in setting up our league in Bath.
Describe Your Roller Derby Career So Far?
It’s been awesome and it wouldn’t be the same if I wasn’t part of such a loving and determined team, I heart BRDG! I have too many highlights, maybe taking part in a couple of public mixed openers (aah!) and a sur5al tournament against 9 co-ed teams with a bajillion times more experience than us.
What’s Your Skate Set Up?
Disappointing! I have my eye on some Riedell Blue Streaks but am currently on my R3s with my favourite Heartless Stalker wheels.
Who’s Your Derby Idol?
Annie Maul of Kansas City Roller Girls… her blocking is incredible and she’s a super-friendly, approachable coach. Also, closer to home Kid Block of Tiger Bay Brawlers is everything I want to be!
Sum Up BRDG In Five Words?
“Let’s make a googledoc!” “Cake?”
Fun Fact About You?
I don’t like cricket.
