You may bring your own skates but they must match our specifications, they will be checked on arrival:
They must be Clean
No sharp protruding sharp parts, fully recessed wheel nuts and bolts.
(run your hands across the vertical outside face of the wheels to check)
This is for everyone’s safety. If you have sharp wheel bolts sticking out you might cut someone. You can fix this with a file of grinder.
Polyurethane wheels, not hard plastic such as nylon or PVC. This is part of our agreement with the venue, in order for the floor to be protected from damage. If you paid less then £40 for your skates the wheels are probably not Polyurethane. If you can press your finger nail into the wheel and feel some give/springiness, it is made of Polyurethane.
No loose wheels (give them a wobble), no missing stoppers
No worn out bearings.
We will tighten up loose wheels for you but if the bearings are completely worn out, they won’t be allowed in as they can cause an accident.
