About

WHAT IS ROLLER DERBY?!

Roller Derby is a fast-paced contact sport played by people on roller skates, which was invented in the USA back in the 1930s. The game consists of a series of short match ups (“jams”) in which both teams designate a scoring player (a “jammer”) who scores points by lapping members of the opposing team.

There is no ball involved!



WHO IS COPENHAGEN ROLLER DERBY?

Copenhagen Roller Derby (CRD) was founded in September 2009 by Charlie Hedman. Copenhagen Roller Derby is the oldest roller derby team in Denmark. We are a member of WFTDA, and have teams for adults as well as our Junior Roller Derby team - Troublemakers.

Apart from playing derby, we also want to be a safer space for women, trans and queer people.
