Why did you get involved in roller derby?
I came to watch my sister (Dr Blockson) play her first home bout for the Hulls Angels Roller Dames against Bruising Banditas. I was immediately hooked, I loved how fast paced, aggressive and full on the game was. I had not long ago had a baby and need to start some form of exercise so I decided to attend their next fresh meat intake and passed my minimum skills within 8 weeks. I then started training with the Hulls Angels Roller Dames along side my sister.

What is your favourite part about being a Roller girl? 
My favourite part about playing roller derby has got to be all the new friends I have made, its such a friendly and sociable sport. I also love the fitness side too and playing along side my sister.

Any top tips for up and coming Derby Superstars?
