We’re based at The Thunderdome, our training and bouting venue on King Street, Oldham.
This building had at one time been Riley’s Pool Hall, and Butterflies Nightclub, but had been disused for some time. Last summer, our roller girls took to work to transform it into a rollerskating venue. Read more about how we refurbished our Thunderdome!
The Thunderdome is on King Street in Oldham, and the entrance is a purple door opposite Halfords.The Thunderdome First Floor 1 King Street Oldham OL8 1EU
By Car: There are some extensive roadworks going on around that junction at the moment, for the new Metrolink, so please be careful if you are travelling by car. You can park on street around that area, or in the local multi-storey carparks near the shops, but be aware that some of these close at 7pm.
By Tram: You can get the Metrolink from Manchester Victoria to Oldham Mumps (journey time around 25 minutes). A brisk walk up Union Street will get you to the Thunderdome in 7 minutes. You’ll pass Oldham Library and Gallery Oldham, and Sainsbury’s on the way.
By Bus: Catch the 82, 83, 180 or 184 from outside Cash Converters on Oldham Street, Manchester City Centre (near the Picadilly gardens corner, by Nobile’s Amusements). Get off at Mecca Bingo on King Street, just a short way up the road from the Thunderdome. The bus takes around 35 minutes and it’s £4.50 for a day rider ticket to get you there and back.
