Roller Derby Leicester (RDL) was formed in November 2013, by a group of experienced and novice roller derby players with the joint mission of growing the sport with a professional approach.
Almost a year on and the league has doubled in size to some 50 members, a mixture of seasoned players, rookies, new recruits, officials and volunteers.
RDL currently has one competing travel team, with a view to creating a B-Team in the near future. RDL is passionate about growing the sport in the Midlands, hosting boot camps to assist in the development of other local leagues.
RDL’s travel team enjoyed unprecedented success in their debut 2014 season, and to-date remain unbeaten. Since starting out unranked at their formation in November 2013, the Jackals have leapt a full 326 rankings places, and are currently 34th in Europe and 19th in the UK on Flat Track Stats.
