Formed in 2008 Granite City Roller Derby are Aberdeen's original Roller Derby league.
From humble beginnings skating in a car park, the league has grown to become a huge success. Currently we have two bouting teams - the Northern Fights and the Fight Hawks - and bring in and coach new skaters all the time, running training sessions 4 nights a week across Aberdeen!
Roller Derby is a fast-paced and full-contact indoor sport played by teams on quad roller skates. A refreshing example of a sport where women compete at the highest level, manage, coach and run all aspects of the sport.
Granite City Roller Derby are members of UKRDA and play under WFTDA rules. For the past 3 years they have competed in the British Championships, and will be playing in tier 3 in 2018.
Roller Derby is growing all the time. Since GCRD hosted Scotland’s first Tournament in 2010 the number of teams in Scotland has exploded. And there are now around 100 leagues UK wide, including a growing number of men's and mixed (co-ed) leagues.
