The Power of Roller Derby

Collierville, TN – Roller derby has emerged again in the United States. Since its resurgence, it has exploded to include more than 150 leagues across the nation. The sport barely resembles its predecessors, though. It is still tough but not silly anymore.

The leagues are local and skater-owned-and-operated. The Memphis Roller Derby has been together for little more than a year. It offers women an unconventional sport that has become an empowering physical outlet.
