The UKRDA is excited to announce it is ready to receive new membership applications.
UKRDA is the National Association for roller derby in the UK, and aims to promote and grow rollerderby.
In order to be truly representative of the UK derby community, UKRDA encourages all leagues (yes, men too!) to join, and get actively involved in influencing the direction of the sport in Great Britain.
So…who can join the UKRDA?

-Have regular training sessions of 5 hours per month.
-Have a minimum of 5 skating members.
-All participants aged 18 years or over

UKRDA Member leagues have access to a wealth of information and advice from other member leagues as well as assistance/guidance from the Association with any issues or queries related to playing the sport and running leagues in the UK. Members are ‘first to know’ regarding communications from National Governing Bodies (NGBs) and other relevant government organisations/Quangos. Being a member of the UKRDA gives leagues front line access to relevant offers from other organisations.
