Monterey Bay Derby Dames (MBDD) is a roller derby league based in Monterey, California. Founded in 2010, the league consists of three teams, and a travel team which competes against teams from other leagues.

The league was founded in April 2010[1] by three skaters associated with the Santa Cruz Derby Girls but living in Monterey, who wanted to play for a more local league.[2] It played its first bout in February 2011, attracting more than 500 fans.[1] League members have included Kimbley Craig, a councilwoman in Salinas, who broke her leg while playing in an intraleague bout.[3]

In July 2011, Monterey Bay was accepted as an apprentice member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association.[4]
