Women are being urged to get their skates on and join a new roller team.

Country Rollers is aimed at women from counties Armagh and Tyrone and is the only squad outside Belfast.

It was set up by a Tyrone woman in a bid to address the lack of women’s team sports outside Belfast.

The rollers begins their training at The Rink, 7 Derryneskan Road, Portadown, on Monday, January 26.

Training is every Monday between 7-8pm, and the Country Rollers are calling on everyone over 18 who would like to get involved to come down and give it a try. Referees are also needed.

Skates are available at The Rink.

The Rink is a non-profit business run by charity Love Hockey Ireland, and is the only hall in Ireland fitted with an IceCourt multi-sport surface.
