Who are we?

We're an independent community focused roller sports club from Falkirk run by volunteers who welcome all skaters regardless of experience or ability. We hold adult indoor skating sessions for members from September to July and community social skates to some tunes for all ages. We also skate outdoors (weather permitting) aiming to head out weekly on Fridays during July and August. We have a variety of routes available around Falkirk which can be adapted depending on the fitness and abilities of anyone attending.

We are 100% not for profit with every penny being reinvested into what we do, none of our members or committee are remunerated.

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 club 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 😲
