Roller Derby is the fastest growing women’s sport in the world. Attracting vast amounts of media attention in just a short amount of time, its skaters having become like ‘pseudo celebrities’, attracting diehard fans and sell out crowds. Derby girls embrace their femininity in the form of funky outfits. Costumes are often inspired by rockabilly or burlesque fashions highlighting their sex appeal. These women are undeniably strong and fierce. The spirit of community is amazing and whatever happens on the rink stays on the rink. This isn’t just a sport, THIS IS ROLLER DERBY.
