The London Rockin' Rollers (LRR) are a women's flat-track roller derby league based in London, England and play by Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) rules.

History[edit]

The league was started in 2007. At the time, there were only two other roller derby teams in the UK: the London Rollergirls and the Birmingham Blitz Dames. The team went on to make UK roller derby history later that year, by participating in the UK's first ever interleague scrimmage with the Birmingham Blitz Dames on 1 July. They made history again in 2007 when they played the Stuttgart Valley Roller Girlz in Europe's first interleague bout on the 14th of October.

In 2009, the league presented their first home bouting season at the historic York Hall in Bethnal Green.[1] The league also hosted its very first intraleague bout on the 27th of February 2010, a closely fought bout between the Voodoo Skull Krushers and the NeanderDolls[2]

In 2011, four of the league were involved in the Roller Derby World Cup: Jack Attack and then member The Mighty Mighty Bash representing Team England (3rd place), Kit Kat Power representing Team Sweden (6th place) and Dr D Zaster, the league's then Head Referee as Referee.

In January 2012, London Rockin' Rollers competed in, and won, the UKRDA's Tattoo Freeze Tournament. In June, several of LRR were part of the Olympic Games Opening ceremony and the Paralympic Games opening ceremony.[3] In September, Kit Kat Power represented Team Sweden against Team USA and Jackattack represented Team England, also against Team USA.

In October 2012, the league was accepted as a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Programme,[4] and it became a full member of the WFTDA in September 2013.[5]

Teams[edit]

The London Rockin' Rollers founded three new home teams late in 2009, the NeanderDolls,[6] Voodoo Skull Krushers,[7] and the Goldie Lookin' Chain Gang.[8]

Members from the home teams compete against other leagues on either of the league's travel teams; the London Rockin' Rollers All Stars, and the London Rockin' Rollers Rising Stars.[9]

The Rising Stars, who are the 'B' travel team, were formed in late 2010 and have already competed in international bouts against Kallio Rolling Rainbow in Helsinki, Finland, and Crime City Rollers in Malmo, Sweden.
