Newcastle Roller Girls
Who are you?
Newcastle Roller Girls are the largest roller derby team in the North East of England, forged when like minds, athletic ability and a desire to do something different collided with an imported American sport. Roller derby is a grass roots, full contact roller skating sport. It’s fast and it’s fierce - not for the faint hearted!
We’ve been part of the recent UK roller derby boom, with our ranks swelling more than we can believe and demand for our rookie course blowing us away with every intake. This interest & the hard work everyone puts into the league means we now have 3 teams:
•The Canny Belters - Our A team
•The Whippin’ Hinnies - Our B team
•Tyne & Fear - Our men's team
We also have a whole team of refs and officials who support the team all along the way. We're currently recruiting refs and officials so get in touch if you want to get involved.
What have you done?
Well, mostly we've been skating...
