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