London Rockin' Rollers (LRR) is a women's flat-track roller derby league based in London, England. Founded in 2007, the league is a member of both the United Kingdom Roller Derby Association (UKRDA)[1] and the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA),[2] and plays by WFTDA rules.

History[edit]

The league was started in 2007. At the time, there were only two other roller derby teams in the UK, the London Rollergirls and the Birmingham Blitz Dames. Later that year the team participated in the UK's first ever interleague scrimmage with Birmingham on 1 July. They made history again in 2007 when they played the Stuttgart Valley Roller Girlz in Europe's first interleague bout on 14 October.

In 2009, the league presented their first home bouting season at the historic York Hall in Bethnal Green.[3] The league also hosted its very first intraleague bout on 27 February 2010, a closely fought bout between the Voodoo Skull Krushers and the NeanderDolls[4]

Four league members were involved in the 2011 Roller Derby World Cup: Jack Attack and then-member The Mighty Mighty Bash representing Team England (3rd place), Kit Kat Power representing Team Sweden (6th place) and Dr D Zaster, the league's then head referee as a referee.

In January 2012, London Rockin' Rollers competed in, and won, the UKRDA's Tattoo Freeze Tournament. In June, several of LRR were part of the Olympic Games opening ceremony and the Paralympic Games opening ceremony.[5] In September, Kit Kat Power represented Team Sweden against Team USA and Jack Attack represented Team England, also against Team USA.

In October 2012, the league was accepted as a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Programme,[6] and it became a full member of the WFTDA in September 2013.[7]

Teams[edit]

The London Rockin' Rollers founded three new home teams late in 2009, the NeanderDolls,[8] Voodoo Skull Krushers,[9] and the Goldie Lookin' Chain Gang.[10] Members from the home teams compete against other leagues on either of the league's travel teams; the London Rockin' Rollers All Stars, and the London Rockin' Rollers Rising Stars.[11] The Rising Stars, who are the 'B' travel team, were formed in late 2010 and have already competed in international bouts against Kallio Rolling Rainbow in Helsinki, Finland, and Crime City Rollers in Malmö, Sweden.
