Are you ready for The Return of Rainy City? This will be your first chance to see Rainy skate in over two years and we can’t wait to see you!
Before our headline game we’re hosting a coached skater debut. You’ll get to watch some of the freshest derby talent and cheer on your favourite debut skaters as the Astral Flyers take on the Lunar Rockets. Skaters will be part of a team with a dedicated bench crew and on-track coaching from Rainy City veterans Banshee, Fairy Quake and Kate Push, and new Rainy superstar jammer Hazard. The extra guidance will be super useful for new skaters learning to play roller derby.
Then prepare yourselves for Rainy City’s first game since March 2020 against Auld Reekie Roller Derby from Edinburgh. It’s hard to know what to expect having been away so long, but one thing we do know: roller derby is BACK and we’re ecstatic about it.
