Roller skating has made a comeback in many parts of the world during the COVID-19 pandemic - and the revival has now made its way to Cessnock.

PCYC Cessnock will be holding roller skating sessions on Thursday evenings, starting October 15.

Club manager Lelio Rossi said they have had a "massive response" to the new activity after announcing it on Facebook on September 24.

Mr Rossi said they decided to introduce skating at the request of members.

"We have a skate park which is mainly used by scooters, skate boards and BMX bikes. We had a lot of roller skaters asking if there was a place for the them to skate, so we looked at our multi-sports room and was sufficient for roller skating," he said.

Two one-hour sessions will be held, starting at 5pm and 6pm. Each session costs $3 per person, and is open to all ages.

Everyone who attends must be a member of PCYC ($10 annually for under 18-years, and $25 for adults), and must bring their own roller skates and helmets.

Due to COVID restrictions, sessions are limited to 50 people.
