You may not have heard of Roller Derby (a fast-paced, full-contact sport played by two teams on roller skates) and until two years ago, neither had Lorna Brown, 28, from London. I read about Roller Derby in a magazine and thought it sounded like a lot of fun, she says. At the time, I was working from home and looking for a way to keep fit, have fun and meet new people. I went along to watch first of all, but as soon as I had skates on my feet, I never wanted to take them off again.
