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. Watch our promo video for an insight into one of the world's fastest-growing sports courtesy of our skaters themselves. If you don't consider yourself a sports fan, you might just be surprised...

Leeds Roller Dolls and Aire Force One are devastated to announce that we have lost our home venue Leeds International Futsal Arena.

Having trained and held games at the venue for the past four years, we are deeply saddened that we are now homeless. Between the two clubs there are over 90 members, some of whom have been skating for up to ten hours a week to play roller derby at the highest level.

Futsal was also home to the popular recreational night Wednesday Skate, enjoyed by individuals and families from across the north, allowing us to share our love of skating outside of the roller derby community.

We are now searching for a new home

  • In the short term anywhere that we can train.
  • Longer term a venue that will be suitable for all training and hosting of games.
  • The even longer term goal is to own our own venue.

If you can help us find somewhere new to rent, know of funding opportunities that might help us purchase our own home, want to invite one or some of our teams to train / scrim or can help publicise our plight

please get in touch with us: pr@leedsrollerdolls.co.uk.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our incredibly hard-working volunteers and supporters for their assistance this week and for their continued efforts. Onwards and upwards!

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.
