Who are we?

We're a rollersports club from Falkirk who play non-contact roller hockey weekly and run adult indoor skating sessions from September to July. During July and August we skate outdoors (weather permitting) aiming to head out weekly. We have a variety of routes available around Falkirk which can be adapted depending on the fitness and abilities of anyone attending.

How long have we been around?

Falkirk Wheelers originate from a group of friends who have been together since the 1970s. We were officially constituted in January 2013 when our roller hockey group was formed and since then we become a multi-rollersports group playing most court sports on skates plus we even travelled to London in 2015 to play the English roller soccer team. In case you're interested they won 16-4 😲

What do you do and where?

We play non-contact roller hockey on Tuesdays all year round from 19:30-21:00 in Bo'Ness Recreation Centre and hold adult indoor skating sessions in Denny Sports Centre on Fridays from 19:00-20:30 between September and July. We skate outdoors most Friday evenings during summer starting from Falkirk Stadium at 19:30. All ages are welcome although children must be acompanied by someone over 18.

Please email in advance if you're interested in joining any of the indoor activities as we don't do drop in sessions and payment must be made in advance.

Do you provide skating instruction?

Yes, we provide rollerblading and rollerskating lessons. The cost per hour is: -

Indoors: £30 for one to one, add £5 per person up to a maximum of ten people.

Outdoors: £20 for one to one, add £5 per person up to a maximum of five people to prevent crowding in public spaces.

Indoor and outdoor lessons are held in the Falkirk area. Our preferred location for indoor lessons is Avonbridge Community Hall. We don't provide any equipment so you must have your own skates, pads and helmet for lessons.


Social Aims

Our group are socially aware - any indoor classes are held in community centres and halls to do what we can for our community. In addition, we've raised a lot of money for various charitable causes over the years including UNICEF, Canine Partners, Deaf Blind Scotland, the Forth Hedgehog Hospital and Seamab at The Great Scottish Skate 2019.
