Norfolk Roller Derby began in 2010 as Norfolk Brawds Roller Derby, and has over the past 12 years evolved from a single women's team to become the inclusive league that it is today.
Based in Norwich, we are Norfolk's first and only roller derby league and comprise of four travel teams - two WFTDA gender policy-aligned teams as well as one MRDA gender policy-aligned team, as well as an all genders mixed team. We also have two in-house teams that face off yearly at our intra-league bout!
We are entirely member led and operated and take pride in giving people who have never skated the skills to skate and play roller derby. Our members coach, referee, and officiate one another, supporting the league in its growth and supporting one another on our shared journey.
Norfolk Roller Derby is proud to be involved in our local community and is active in celebrating Norfolk in the Lord Mayor's procession, Norwich Pride, and other events throughout the year.
As an Official Supporter of Norwich Pride, we pledge our organisation will be a safe, welcoming, and friendly place for LGBT+ league members and supporters. We will visibly support and promote equality for LGBT+ people, challenge homophobic and transphobic behaviour, and have clear reporting mechanisms for harassment and discrimination. We will ensure our league members are trained to understand the experiences of LGBT+ people and how to be a proactive ally.
