Roller Derby at Beach Life Festival

This year, for the first time, Eastbourne Roller Derby’s 2-day event willoperate from not one spot, but two: Fisherman’s Green tennis court and the cage next door. This gives ERD the exciting opportunity to attract a wider audience from within the skating world, therefore increasing the visitor numbers to the beautiful town of Eastbourne.

Eastbourne Extreme is Europe’s only outdoor roller derby event and has always drawn a substantial crowd. Skaters, referees, non-skating officials and supporters from around the world will congregate in Eastbourne over the weekend of 13 and 14 of July.
