Haunted City Rollers (HCR) is based in Derby, the dead centre of the UK, and had its first training session in January 2011. After a slow start in 2011 with (too common in our sport!) difficulties finding practice space, they finally found a home in April 2012. Since then the team has been going from strength to strength with some closed door / mixed bouting taken place so far with local teams. HCR currently has 25 full members with interest and membership growing fast. The amazing training team provide training and advice to skaters of all abilities from starter to advanced bouting.
Throughout the last year and a half HCR have forged some strong links with local charities including homeless charities, cancer support charities and children’s charities. All the members in the league look forward to making these links stronger when they host their own home bouts.
HCR look forward to being active members of the UKRDA and are very excited about bouting with many UKRDA leagues in the future. In addition HCR is looking forward to contributing to the sport of roller derby in the Derby derby team!
