Dick Vet Roller Hockey

Roller Hockey is an exciting and fast game with many similarities to Ice Hockey but on wheels. There is less contact but is just as fast and furious. We accept both experienced players and complete beginners, with sessions split by ability, so please contact us if you’re interested.

The Edinburgh University team has played consistently well in tournaments across Scotland since the club was founded in 1998, with many successes since then. We are currently working on building a vet school team so we can have more tournaments!

We can supply all the equipment to get you started, beginner coaching, and even a free first session – so there’s no excuse not to give it a try!

  • Per session: £10.00
  • No gym membership required

Practices are every Thursday at the Jack Kane Sports Centre. Beginner/Intermediate session runs 18:30-19:30 and Advanced sessions 19:30-20:30.
