Blader collective Forged From Steel is transforming the House Skatepark into a blader’s paradise this coming Saturday, 11th June, when they host their first Blade Jam at the park. The day is a blade only event, featuring DJs, a BBQ and a marketplace of trade stalls, and ONLY an ice cream van to keep competitors cool. As well as an impressive array of sponsors, the Jam has a serious prize pot for the winners of the Expert / Sponsored category. First place nets you £500, second £250, and third £100, so it’s well worth throwing your hat in the ring.

Here’s how the day will run:

The park opens at 10am as usual but the day is BLADE ONLY, so please don’t turn up intending to skate or scoot, because we hate turning people away! While the competitive events start at 12, you might want to come down earlier if you intend to enter, as each category is open to 30 entrants max. Sign up sheets will be in the office from when the park opens. Then…

12pm: 16 and Under comp.

2pm: Open section.

4pm: Expert / Sponsored

The comp will round off with a Best Trick challenge, with a £100 prize generously donated by Rollhouse Skate Shop (check out their stall at the event).

Entry fee is £5 to enter or just spectate. Sponsors so far include Loco Skates, Razor Skates, Ground Control, Noodle Brain, Kaltik, Blade Life, Trigger Skates, Rollhouse, Tru Apparel,Mute Collective, Forged From Steel, Fox Wax, S F Brand and the House Skatepark.

The House is offering customers a new way of paying to ride, with all of the perks and convenience of your average gym membership, but none of the pain. The new House Gold Card, which is launched on 1st April 2016 lets you pay a flat rate fee for a month’s skating by standing order, and then how much you use the park is up to you.

For £40 per month you’ll be purchasing UNLIMITED use of the park at all times when we’re open to the general public. Also, you automatically get 20% off all goods in our Skate Shop from boards to bearings. But there’s no minimum contract term, and no start up fees. If you sign up for a GOLD CARD, then payment will roll over from month to month, and you can choose to terminate your membership with no comeback.

So what’s the advantage? Put simply, the potential savings you could make are enormous, and using the park becomes even easier. If you want to know more about the terms and conditions, or sign up, just ask one of our staff, call on 0114 2490055, email or drop us a PM.

Ladies Night 20/11/2015

On Friday 20th November we’ll be hosting our first ever girl skater event when Girl Skate UK brings Ladies Night to the House. From 7pm – 10pm we’ll be giving up the park to women on wheels. It costs £5 to ride for the whole evening, and whatever your age or level of ability we promise a warm welcome. Although it probably doesn’t need saying, this is a girl-only event supporting the growing girl skater scene. Hope to see you down!
