Series Summary

Roller derby is a contact sport, started in America, and a form of sports entertainment based on formation roller skating around an oval track. While traditionally a professional sport for both women and men, roller derby has developed a predominantly female, amateur circuit with a emphasis on do-it-yourself methods. Most modern roller derby leagues are all-female and self-organized, and formed with an independent aesthetic. These leagues use traditional quad roller skates and dress in a way that gives homage to punk rockers. Many leagues are legally incorporated as non-profit organizations, and most compete on flat tracks.
