Rollersoccer. Apparently it is played all around the world, but this is the first time I've heard of it. Doesn't take a leap of the imagination to work out what it is though, does it? Just in case you need a hint, rollersoccer is the fusion of skating and football. It isn't just some gimmick where you dribble a ball round, but a proper team sport.
A four-a-side game, the first ever UK event was held in March 2003, and it was such a success that in the July of that year, London hosted the first ever rollersoccer world cup. We got slaughtered. But hey, who cares, it was good fun.
I doubt any of us will be participating in the next world cup, but you can still have a go at this new, exciting sport by going to one of Rollersoccer's open sessions. These £12 classes will be held on 2nd, 9th, 16th, and 23rd March at the Queen Mother's Sport Centre in Victoria. You are required to bring your own set of rollerblades, so some basic skating skills will be expected. Nothing too advanced though, since the classes are designed to help you gain skills in starting, stopping, turning, and skating backwards. It is also a great cardio workout and much more fun than the gym.
