Port Scandalous Roller Derby (PSRD) is a flat track roller derby league based in Port Angeles, Washington. Founded in 2010, the league consists of two teams which compete against teams from other leagues, and an affiliated junior team.

The league was founded in May 2010 by local women including Jessica Carvell, Serena Staples and Holly Wickersham.[1] Initially known as the "Port Scandalous Derby Dolls", it changed its name due to trademark issues.[2] Skaters from other local leagues helped train the new team, and by late 2011, it was bouting monthly, and was setting up a B team and junior roller derby league.[1]

Port Scandalous was accepted as a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program in October 2012,[3] and it became a full WFTDA member in September 2013.[4]
