We are happy to announce that UKRDA men’s leagues will now have rankings based on their sanctioned bouts!

After consultation with our members from men’s leagues, it became clear that they wanted to see teams ranked in the same way as women’s teams.

So, Head of Gaming and Sanctioning, Mistress Malicious, has been working away to see this happen and we can now reveal that it is all in place.

At the start of every quarter, the latest rankings will be posted on the UKRDA website and shared on social media, as we currently do for women’s rankings.

And live stats can also be seen on Flat Track Stats.

To find out more about joining the UKRDA, to get your bouts sanctioned, go to our Join Us page.

2013 Q4 Rankings

The UKRDA are very proud to announce a pivotal moment in UK Roller Derby history; the release of the first UKRDA official rankings. We have been working closely with Flat Track Stats to create this official rankings system for the UK, and UKRDA member leagues have been sanctioning games since the process was introduced at the start of the year.

Using this data the UKRDA and FTS have developed the UK ranking system, which will now be the definitive rankings chart for the UK and the one on which future UKRDA tournaments will be based.

The quarter 4 rankings are the first to be released and only includes teams that have played UKRDA sanctioned games. Unranked teams are required to only play one sanctioned game to be added.

This ranking will now be used to determine invites to UKRDA tournaments.

Going forward there are plans to use a division format, where teams are matched with those of a similar standing, ending in a UK championship.

The 2013 Q4 rankings are as follows:

  1. Auld Reekie Roller Girls 724.2
  2. Glasgow Roller Derby 715.8
  3. Leeds Roller Dolls 675.8
  4. Royal Windsor Roller Girls 673.5
  5. Rainy City Roller Girls 672.0
  6. Middlesbrough Milk Rollergirls 660.0
  7. Brighton Rockers Roller Derby 654.0
  8. Hot Wheel Roller Derby 640.2
  9. Sheffield Steel Rollergirls 624.7
  10. Bristol Roller Derby 618.8
