In training with the Auld Reekie Roller Girls

“Hit harder and skate faster”

Last winter, we were honoured to attend one of Auld Reekie Roller Girls’ training sessions at Meadowbank Sports Centre. Our photographer got close to the action to capture this exciting new movement in Edinburgh’s sporting world and the pictures are now available to view on Capital Collections.

Flat track roller derby is a high-octane contact team sport that requires speed, strategy, and athleticism. If we’re honest, the rules were a bit bamboozling to us, the uninitiated, but the energy and commitment from the players was palpable and totally enthralling.
