London’s first roller derby team
A contact sport played by two teams of five that race to lap each other on roller skates, Roller Derby is a popular sport around the world, with the London Roller Girls ranking 4th worldwide as a leading team. A passionate bunch, they started in 2006 (the first in the UK) and continue to go from strength to strength. A hell of a lot of fun, they hold regular events, workshops, boot camps, and taster sessions that you can attend.
Made up of three teams – the A team who compete on a global scale, the B team who compete in the UK and Europe, and the C team who compete with other A/B teams and climb the rankings – we were lucky enough to watch ‘Batter C Power’ compete against the Oslo Roller Derby in an adrenalin-fuelled match.
There are beer, snacks, and a raffle held by exceptionally friendly hosts, all contributing to an electric atmosphere.
