After running SK8s for 8 fabulous years it is with regret that due to other commitments we can no longer dedicate the time required to maintain a high performing business.
For that reason we’re looking for someone to purchase this highly successful business and continue to demonstrate the same passion for roller skating, customer service and entertaining that has been the hallmark of SK8s throughout our 8 year history.
We operate SK8s across two venues in Lincoln, holding 2 sessions per week for all ages and an additional adults only session on the second Friday of every month.
- Fridays at Yarborough Leisure Centre from 6-8pm
- Saturdays at North Kesteven from 5.30-7.30pm
- Adults only at Yarborough LC from 8.30-10.30pm (ages 16+).
We own a large number of roller skates which we hire out to the public for the weekly sessions, plus a range of other roller skating accessories available for purchase.
Business as usual
We’d like to stress to our SK8ers that nothing will change for the time being, we will not be closing down, simply changing hands when the time comes.
Thank you to everyone who has attended our roller disco over the past 8 years. We’ve had a fabulous run but now wish to see SK8s in the hands of a new team who can give it the love and attention it deserves.

Dates for your SK8s
We run 2 weekly sessions for all ages – one at Yarborough Leisure Centre on a Friday (6-8pm) and another at One NK Sports Centre on a Saturday (5.30-7.30pm). We also run an Adult SK8 (for ages 16+) on the second Friday of the month at Yarborough Leisure Centre (8.30-10.30pm). As a business we rent out the space in these venues and prepare the space for your enjoyment.
Occasionally we are not able to hire out the venue because a member of the public has hired it instead. We will endeavour to give you as much notice as possible. Entry is £5 + £1.50 SK8 hire. Wrist guards are free.

Check out an example below – the testimonial from mother and daughter says it all!
“SK8s ran my daughter’s sixth birthday party and it was just perfect! They worked so hard to make everything fun and safe for all the little skaters and it went down a treat with everyone having a brilliant time. There were some small, and some parent converts to skating as a result. I can’t recommend them enough if you’re looking for a birthday party that’s just that bit different.
Eloise even wanted to leave her own review: “It was awesome!” – Samantha Hook.”

Fridays @ Yarborough Leisure Centre | 6pm – 8pm.

Have you ever skated with our very own Lady MacDeath?
We are delighted to announce that one of our regulars, Eve Gormley, will be representing Great Britain in the Junior Roller Derby World Cup in Philadelphia, and we are her proud sponsors!
On 23rd and 24th July 16-year-old Eve, who is a student at Lincoln College, will join her Team GB Junior Roller Derby teammates from across the country to compete against teams from Europe, USA East, USA West, Canada and Australia. It will be the first time that Great Britain has taken part.
Eve, whose roller derby nickname is ‘Lady MacDeath’ has skated with the Lincolnshire Bombinos team based in Lincoln since 2012 and is one of their longest standing members. She chose the nickname because she is an English Literature student and loves Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
“I’m so excited and honoured to have been selected for Team GB Junior Roller Derby and to have the opportunity to compete against the best junior roller derby players in the world! It’s every young person’s dream to line up alongside fantastic teammates to represent their country doing something they love and I can’t quite believe that I’m going to be doing that in July”. – Eve
Mum Beverley Gormley said:
“We’re so proud that Eve is going to be able to realise her dream of competing internationally in such an exciting sport! She’s worked extremely hard and it’s great to see her hard work and dedication paying off. I want to say a big thank you to all of her coaches at Bombinos and to her sponsor SK8s UK who have encouraged her to practice her fancy footwork at their roller discos. Without them, she wouldn’t have got this far.”
Eve is now crowdfunding to help with the cost of traveling to Team GB training sessions around the country, and her flights and accommodation in the USA. If you’d like to help her get to the Junior World Cup, please donate whatever you can at:
We are also hosting a raffle at our weekly roller disco sessions to help raise funds – details below:
