Croydon Roller Derby
Croydon, England, United Kingdom
We are Croydon Roller Derby – London’s youngest league.
A comparatively small ‘London league’ founded in 2009, CRD has come staggeringly far in its five years. With no venue to begin with, our skaters would practice outdoors in the Ikea car park or on Croydon’s St George’s Walk. Today, we have a great A-team, we have a fantastic B-team, and we have played internationally. We continue to spread the word about CRD, and roller derby in general, with fantastic fundraisers, bouts against formidable opponents, and extremely tasteful calendars. We want to show you that what we lack in size and number we make up for in dedication, resilience, and victories.
Despite the sport’s rapid evolution, Croydon’s league values have remained the same. Our intensive coaching focuses on honing the strengths and talents of every individual to make our team the best it can possibly be. Both our teams take the sport very seriously and everyone is encouraged to help out with committee work, whether it’s bout organisation, graphic design, coaching, or sponsorship. It doesn’t matter where you’re from or what you look like – CRD are only interested in your potential to be great.
