By September 2011, there were more than 1,000 amateur roller derby leagues, covering every inhabited continent,[1] with teams in countries such as Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Germany, Belgium, Finland, Sweden[2] and Singapore[3] In the UK, the sport is mostly played by women.[4]

Contemporary roller derby has a basic set of rules, with variations reflecting the interests of a governing body's member leagues.
