At Copenhagen Roller Derby, we play Flat Track Roller Derby. Roller Derby is the fastest growing sport in the world with over 451 member leagues under WFTDA. It's a full-contact sport played on quad roller skates. The game consists of a series of short games called “jams” in which both teams designate a scoring player (the “jammer”) to score points by lapping members of the opposing team. Roller Derby is an empowering sport for women & gender minorities, and the LGBTQIA+ community and we at Copenhagen Roller Derby, believe in making it an empowering and inclusive space for those people
