Carla Smith and Lucy Croysdill, the co-founders of Rolla Skate Club, will be travelling to Toronto later this month to try and convince the panel of entrepreneurs to invest in their vision and support an effort to franchise their business which they describe as "a roller skating gym that parties on the weekend."
Surrey-area roller-skater Stacey Gowland is among those ready to roll with Rolla Skate Club at its new home in Vancouver. Operators of the three-year-old club have set up at the Rollerland building at the Pacific National Exhibition (PNE), where a launch event was held Friday, Dec. 3.
Aweeee yeah, folks! Rolla Skate Club has found a permanent home in the city, after hosting amazing roller skate events all over Vancouver!

The Rolla Skate Club is excited to announce Rollerland at the PNE! Since the start of Rolla Skate Club almost three years ago, finding a venue to host their in-person rollerskating classes turned out to be a challenging task. From having classes at parking lots, tiny yoga studios, and art galleries, to settling into the late “Skate Church” at Kerrisdale, Rolla has been everywhere.
