We are really excited to announce that the UKRDA will be holding it’s first Southern Region tournament. The two day event will run alongside the Great British Tattoo Show, on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th of May, at the Alexandra Palace in London.
The UKRDA will be presenting five female teams, from the southern region, and two men’s teams playing on a specially fitted roller derby track.
The female teams confirmed are Big Bucks High Rollers, Brighton Rockers Roller Derby, Bristol Roller Derby, Kent Roller Girls and London Rollergirls (Brawl Saints).
The tournament will be groundbreaking as the Crash Test Brummies, from the West Midlands, and latest men’s derby applicant members The Inhuman League, from Sheffield, will be hoping to play the first ever UKRDA sanctioned men’s bout on the Saturday.
The tournament is supported by Sport England Lottery Funding which is a real achievement for the UKRDA and has been made possible as a direct result of our campaigning for roller derby to be recognised as a sport in the UK.
