London Roller Derby is London's premier roller derby league. We compete among the best team in the world and are currently ranked 3rd in Europe (May 2023). Inspired by a grassroots revival of roller derby in Austin, TX, London Rollergirls (now London Roller Derby) became the UK’s first flat track roller derby league back in April 2006. Since then, the league has been at the forefront of international derby, with the A team, London Brawling, rising through the ranks to become one of the top 10 teams in the world and the number one ranked team outside the USA. They were also Europe’s first member league for the official governing body for modern roller derby, Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA), and became the first to win a place at the international Playoffs and Championships.
Leading the roller derby revolution, LRD have become known for their high-quality public sporting events and a fearless attitude to fitness and development. The league is entirely volunteer-run and not for-profit, with more than 100 people (skaters, referees and non-skaters) putting a tireless amount of time and effort into keeping LRD at the top of their game and pushing the roller derby community forward – as well as regularly raising money for charity.
LRD is a women's league with an inclusive gender policy, which includes welcoming trans women, non-binary and gender diverse skaters. The league is divided into three travel teams: London Brawling (A team), Brawl Saints (B team), and Batter C Power (C team).
London Roller Derby also runs a Fundamentals Program for people wanting to start or try out roller derby. You don't need any experience for the Fundimentals Program, so if you're curious, get in touch!
