Kent Roller Girls All-stars made the trip to Glasgow for their first
ever WFTDA-sanctioned games in the Chaos on the Clyde tournament this August.
Their biggest challenge yet saw them play against their highest ranked opponents to-date. With Glasgow Roller Derby dominating the track all weekend and ultimately claiming the trophy, their athleticism and fierce offensive play in the first game of Day One proved too much for Kent’s All Stars: the hosts taking the win. Day Two and KRG’s renowned walls held Auld Reekie for much of the game, with Edinburgh’s reserve team just holding on to their lead to the end.

Kent Roller Girls took part in this year’s Race For Life on Sunday to raise awareness and money to help research into this cruel disease. Some of us ran, some walked but no skating this time! Most of us know someone close who has been affected by cancer as 1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.
We’ve raised over £400 so far and are still hoping to add to our total. Click here to donate!

Roller Derby is a full contact sport, played on roller skates. Its origin in 1950’s choreographed bouts is a far cry from the sport as it is today, which pits two teams against each other in an athletic, energetic battle of strength and strategy in a spectacle that’s not to be missed. The aim of the game is for the ‘jammer’, wearing a star on their helmet, to gain points by passing the ‘blockers’ on the other team. The job of the blockers? Well, that should be obvious! Want to see it for yourself? You’re in luck!
Kent Roller Girls will be taking on London Rockin’ Rollers in their second home game of the season on Saturday 6th April at the Bay Sports Arena, Herne Bay!
