Club on a roll as skate ses­sions restart

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

SKATERS can now roll up to a new venue to in­dulge in their favourite pas­time at the town’s Rollers Club.

The club, which has run roller dis­cos for fam­i­lies in the north west for nine years, was forced to close at Christ­mas af­ter Mac­cles­field Leisure Cen­tre changed the floor sur­face in their sports hall, mak­ing skat­ing dif­fi­cult.

But now club man­ager Korby Sangha has found a new place at the Mul­berry Sports and Leisure Cen­tre near Alder­ley Edge’s Astra-Zeneca site.

Korby said: “The floor is ex­cel­lent to skate on and the venue is great – let us hope that we can re­build our ses­sions of nine years for our skaters.

“It was very dis­ap­point­ing when we saw that our cus­tomers were re­ally strug­gling to skate on the new sur­face.

“It was a tough de­ci­sion to with­draw from Mac­cles­field Leisure Cen­tre and a very emo­tional end to a nine year re­la­tion­ship with what was our big­gest roller disco. We strug­gled hard to find an al­ter­na­tive venue in the area but we hope now that we can get Mac­cles­field rolling again ev­ery Satur­day at our new event.”

The club’s first ses­sion will take place on Satur­day, Jan­uary 16 from 4.15pm to 5.45pm.
