Roller Derby

Does anyone play/watch/follow roller derby? Are there any university teams? Interested to know as I am thoroughly obsessed and could chat about it all day!

I'd love to watch it one day, not sure if it's something that ever gets shown on TV?

Hi @PileaP it doesn't usually get shown on TV, I guess because it's not recognised as an official sport. All leagues are amateur. However, You Tube is your friend for watching. Some of the US teams like Rose City (OR) and Gotham Roller Derby (NY) are top in the world and make for exciting viewing. London Roller Derby and Rainy City (Manchester) are the top UK teams and have games on YT as well. Enjoy!
