The Paper Valley Rollergirls (PVRG)is a roller derby league based in Appleton, Wisconsin. Founded in 2008, the league consists of two teams which compete against teams from other leagues.

The league gained a higher profile following the release of Whip It![1] In addition to Appleton, the league have played home bouts out of Green Bay, Wisconsin.[2]

Paper Valley was accepted into the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program in November 2009,[3] and became a full member of the WFTDA in June 2010.[4]

In 2012, PVRG won the Women's Rolling Along the River Tournament. The following season, Paper Valley earned a spot in the newly created Division 2 playoffs, as a 7th seed in the Kalamazoo tournament. PVRG went (2-2), claiming 6th place, and an international rank of 54th.

In September 2015, Paper Valley announced on social media that they will be merging with Appleton's other WFTDA-member league, Fox Cities Roller Derby, and the new organization will continue to operate under the Fox Cities name.
