Take cover! We’re about to introduce our most explosive ref yet.

Introducing Anni Ka-Boom, # 403! Here’s what she has to say about being a ref for the Birmingham Blitz Dames.


“I’m a skater (and occasional ref) with the Blitz Dames and a baby ref with the Crash Test Brummies. I’ve completed ref school there, but my training is still very much in progress; I don’t think the learning ever stops, actually.

Reffing is hard, and learning it can be frustrating; but one of the things that keeps me coming back is the people; all the refs I’ve met have been incredibly supportive, funny and just generally lovely people (even Grumpy Cates!).” – Anni Ka-Boom
