About Us

Adrenaline-pumping. Exhilarating. Edge-of-your-seat exciting. Do you need another reason to watch your local roller derby team in action? Leeds Roller Dolls were formed in 2007 and our A team, the Rebel Roses, are now one of the top roller derby teams in Europe and privileged to compete at a high level nationally and internationally. In addition to our competitive league, we run both recreational and junior leagues to allow women of all ages and abilities to learn play this full-contact, female-pioneered sport. Check out our ‘Skate with us’ section for more information about how you can get involved.

Skate With Us

As well as our two competitive teams, the Rebel Roses and the Whip-Its, Leeds Roller Dolls runs a recreational and a junior league. Whether you’re young, a bit less young, a total novice or a seasoned derby skater, we have space for you to get involved. Being part of the roller derby community is hugely rewarding whether on skates or off, so if playing derby isn’t for you, why not consider being a referee or a non-skating official? To enquire about becoming part of Leeds Roller Dolls, please email our recruit team at recruit@leedsrollerdolls.co.uk.
