Because it allows me to feel like myself and empowers me to do more!

Each and all of them are an inspiration and they work super hard to make roller Derby the best it can be!!

Why do you play roller derby?
Initially it just seemed a great excuse to start skating again. Once I started learning to play Derby, I got hooked on the physical and mental challenge, and the spirit that underpins Border City Rollers and Roller Derby in general. Having joined this brilliant gang of fierce, friendly people there was no going back (partly because of the veiled threats). Also, some of them are great at making cakes, and it'd be a shame to miss out on that if I left.
