Manchester, United Kingdom
The Rainy City Roller Derby are an established all-female full contact roller derby league. Founded in Greater Manchester in 2008, we have gone from strength to strength, regularly playing against the top teams in the UK. In September 2011, we opened our own training venue where we also host our home games in Oldham, The Thunderdome, and have since developed strong links with the town, and the sports and physical activity organisations in the community.
As of September 2013, we became Full Members of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) following the completion of the WFTDA Apprentice Program. We join the ranks of more than 200 member leagues and over 100 apprentice leagues from around the world. We are exceptionally proud to be Full Members of the WFTDA and look forward to the opportunities that this will bring to us as a league.
We are also members of the UKRDA, and are committed to working with other leagues around the UK to champion our sport, and to spread a positive message about Roller Derby far and wide.
Real. Strong. Athletic. Revolutionary.
