The Greenville Derby Dames (GDD) is a roller derby league based in Greenville, South Carolina. Founded in 2008, the league consists of two teams, which compete against teams from other leagues.

Founded in November 2008,[1] the league's skaters come from a wide variety of backgrounds.[2] Greenville has competed in a number of tournaments, and hosts its own "'Twas the Fight before Christmas" tournament each December.[3][4]

The league was accepted as a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Programme in July 2012,[5] and became a full member of the WFTDA in June 2013.[6]
