About Roller Derby

Roller Derby is an American-made contact sport that originated in the early 1900s.

Today’s game, which involves higher levels of strategy, is currently regaining popularity all over the country.

Teams are currently active in Nashville, Memphis and Knoxville. Roller Derby is experiencing a resurgence of popularity. Today’s teams are all-female, self-organized, and feature athleticism and campy outfits. Men are welcome to participate as coaches, referees, announcers and in team support roles. The sport is governed by the rules of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA), which sets the rules and determines the baseline skills required of participants.
