The United Kingdom Roller Derby Association (UKRDA) is the National Association for roller derby in the UK.[1] The association was formed in 2010[2] with 15 member leagues, and was recognized by the British Roller Sports Federation soon after.

The UKRDA has a cooperative relationship with the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) and recognises the WFTDA rules and regulations as the universal standard, several of its members are also WFTDA members. The UKRDA is a member-led organisation that exists to promote and lobby for roller derby in the UK, however unlike the WFTDA, it will admit men's and mixed leagues.[3]
