Peterborough Area Roller Derby (or PARD) is always looking for new skaters and skating referees, with opportunities for both men and women. The next Fresh Meat intake is scheduled to start mid September 2018, and will cater to both absolute beginner skaters and to those who already have strong quad roller skating skills.
