The Green Country Roller Girls was a roller derby league based in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Founded in 2006, the league consisted of two teams which competed in interleague games.

Green Country began bouting soon after forming, and played its first home bout against the Big Easy Rollergirls in May 2007.[1]Green Country Roller Girls were a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) and their All Stars team played in WFTDA sanctioned games that counted towards national rankings.

In 2011, Tulsa qualified for the WFTDA South Central Playoffs for the first time. Seeded eighth, they managed to finish in seventh place.[2]

The league announced that it would disband in June 2012.[3] The WFTDA announced in July that it was suspending the league's membership, pending a decision on whether skaters in Tulsa were transferring membership to a new organization, or forming a group which would not be affiliated with the association.[4]
