The sport of competitive roller skating was first introduced in Pakistan nearly 20 years ago by Mr. Khalid Saeed, who is now the General Secretary of the Roller Skating Federation of Pakistan. Men and women of all ages roller skate in Pakistan, on inline skates and quad roller skates, and the two most popular disciplines are speed skating and roller hockey. Pakistani skaters participate on a regular basis in speed and hockey competitions around the world.

There are many roller skating facilities in Pakistan, and the city of Lahore is the main center of activity. There are three very good facilities in Lahore. One is primarily for roller hockey and two are rinks designed for all types of skating. Karachi and Faisalbad are the second most important roller skating cities and there are also roller skating rinks in Toba Tek Singh, Gujranwala, and Rawelpindi. There are currently plans underway to build another facility in Lahore that can be used for both speed skating and roller hockey.

Local competitions and speed and hockey camps are held all over Pakistan throughout the year. The 19th National Roller Skating Championships of Pakistan were held March 1-3, 2002.

The General Secretary of the Federation is Mr. Khalid Saeed. Mr. Saeed is also the coach of the Pakistan National Roller Hockey Team, and a former central committee member of the Speed Skating Division of the Asian Confederation of Roller Sports. He conducts training camps for skaters all over Pakistan and he has attended hockey coaching training camps in several different countries. He spends much of his time promoting roller skating in his own and neighboring countries, including Iran, Balgladesh, and many others. He is now focusing on developing his skills as a speed skating coach. Mr. Saeed can be contacted at pakskate@hotmail.com. I wish to thank Mr. Saeed for keeping me informed about the sport of roller skating in Pakistan, and for giving me permission to reprint his photos in this article.
