Who are we?

We're a community focused inline and roller skating club from Falkirk run by volunteers who welcome all skaters regardless of experience or ability. We play non-contact roller hockey weekly, hold adult indoor skating sessions 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 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 due to limited hall capacities.

Indoors: £25 up to a maximum of five people (includes hall hire). **

Social Aims

Our group are socially aware, any indoor classes are held in community centres and halls. We've worked with other groups in the community including Brownies, Scouts, young carers and local schools. 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.. Check out the FW Social page for more details.

News - June 2022

The next social skate at Denny is on the 24th of June.

Amazing news, we've been awarded money thanks to Aldi Scotland for kit to allow us to take our social skates to more local communities. If you're interested in bringing skating to your community group then contact us and we'll make it happen 😊🛼
