Kent Roller Girls were the first competitive league located in the county of Kent. Like most other roller derby leagues in the world, we follow a “for the skaters, by the skaters” ethos and all matters are run exclusively by members of the league. We are financed entirely by members and we rely on donations and subscription to maintain our league.

The league itself was established in 2010 with the first practice taking place in July at Herne Bay on the historic pier. Created to bring flat-track roller derby to this little corner of England, KRG is made up of an eclectic mix of ladies and gentlemen of all ages and all backgrounds. We have grown from a handful of members to participating in games against both national and international teams. In 2015 we took part in the British Championships, coming third in our tier.

KRG encourages people of all backgrounds to participate, regardless of ability and we are all dedicated to helping each member reach their goals. All members of the league are encouraged to play a part in the running of the league, whether it be fundraising, promotion, merchandising or recruitment and all members are encouraged to have their say.

Kent Roller Girls are proud to be a member of the United Kingdom Roller Derby Association (UKRDA) and follows the current Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) rulesets.
