Auld Reekie Roller Girls (ARRG) is a grassroots women’s flat track roller derby league based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Founded in 2008, ARRG was the first Scottish Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) member. The league aims to create teams with the ability to compete locally and internationally at the highest levels.
ARRG play by the rules of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association, and were officially accepted as an Apprentice League on 5 October 2010. The league graduated as full members of the WFTDA on 1 September 2011.
Formed in April 2008 the Auld Reekie Roller Girls were Edinburgh's first women's flat track roller derby league, and take their name after the city of Edinburgh, affectionately known as 'Auld Reekie' ('Old Smoky' in the Scots language). Within 2 months of forming there was local media interest.
ARRG organise and skate in numerous bouts and tournaments, both 'closed' (for development purposes) and 'open' public bouts. ARRG hosted their first ever public bout, entitled "Fishnet Burns Night", at Meadowbank Sports Centre on the 24 January 2009  just 10 months after their formation, and competed in the London Rollergirls hosted European tournament "Roll Britannia" in 2009, placing 4th 
ARRG have an international standing, having travelled to Berlin to take part in the first European Organisational Roller Derby Conference in November 2012, and to Philadelphia, USA, to compete in the East Coast Derby Extravaganza in June 2013.
Currently home bouts are played at the Meadowbank Stadium, which has capacity for up to 400 spectators. The sport of roller derby is still growing in Scotland, as women over 18 are flocking to the 'Fresh Meat Sundays' beginner sessions.
- The All Stars (formerly The Twisted Thistles)
- The All Star Reserves (formerly The Cannon Belles)
Intra-league teams were previously selected on a game-by-game basis under the names The Highland Heathens and Celtic Chaos. In 2012, three permanent home teams were formed and the annual Home Season tournament was launched.
- The Cherry Bombers
- The Skatefast Club (2014 winners)
- The Leithal Weapons (2012, 2013 winners)
