The One Love Roller Dolls (OLRD) are a flat track roller derby league based in Antwerp in Belgium. Founded in 2010, the league currently consists of two teams which competes against teams from other leagues.

The league was founded in February 2010 by four local women: Lolli Chop, An C Hammer, Cherry Moshpit and Queen Sil. It affiliated with the local roller skating club, Kon Klopstokia RHC, thereby gaining access to its training facilities.[1]

One Love was one of the first two roller derby leagues established in Belgium,[2] and in December 2011, One Love and the Gent Go-Go Rollergirls were named as the top two Belgian leagues by Het Laatste Nieuws.[3]

In July 2012, One Love was accepted as a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Programme.[4]
