The Track Albany

The Track is an amazing new venue set to open this December in Albany, WA. Albany Roller Derby League has worked hard to secure a space perfectly designed for smaller indoor sports and community groups in the Great Southern.

The venue is over 1000 square metres and has a mezzanine floor perfect for smaller groups as well as an 825 square metre playing area. The Track has team rooms, showers, kitchen area and modern reception area. It is an Australian first to have a space to train and compete that is operated by a roller derby league.

The Track is located on Roundhay Road just off Lower Denmark Road. Albany Roller Derby League wants to see all community groups able to access safe spaces to run physical well-being programs. The Track will be accessible 365 days a year at any time of the day for indoor events, training and competitions.

Albany Roller Derby League President Natalie Jarvis said “We needed a space that accommodated our increasing needs as an indoor sport. We have been looking around Albany for the last 2 years and found nothing suitable. We are the little league that can and so we have. Many hours of volunteer time from our members have gone into the development of The Track.”

Michael Stephen from Albany construction company MCB Construction Pty Ltd came to the table with a very supportive attitude and Michael has been amazingly helpful in getting this project off the ground. “MCB Construction Pty Ltd felt privileged to be a part of this project and creating history for the Albany Roller Derby League and being an integral part in helping establish a very exciting and promising local sporting club. It excites me nothing more than to see a small local group succeed and reach their goals”

Albany Roller Derby League is running a 60-day campaign on Pozible to fund the final and most vital element of The Track. The flooring required to make the venue a truly multi purpose area will cost $70 000 (AUD) and supporters can buy their own piece of track, campaign shirts, or add their name to the Wall of Love by contributing to the Pozible campaign.

The Track: built by the community, for the community.
