The Royal Windsor Rollergirls (RWRG) is a roller derby league based in Berkshire, England. Founded in 2007, the league has grown rapidly and now has three bouting teams which compete with other leagues and two intra-league teams.

History[edit]

The team had only five skaters and one referee when it was founded in September 2007, but it grew rapidly, and had fifty members by April 2010.[1] They played their first bout in 2009, at the Wycombe Sports Centre in nearby Buckinghamshire, which was attended by more than 350 people.[2]

In July 2011, RWRG became a Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice league,[3] and it was a founder member of the UK Roller Derby Association. In June 2012, it became a full member of the WFTDA.[4]
