When did you first get involved with Roller Derby?


What’s your Derby story?

I’d seen Whip It a few years earlier and really wanted to give roller derby a go, but didn’t quite have the confidence to go by myself. When I moved to York in 2014, I decided to go for it, as it would be a great way to meet some new people and keep fit. From there I gained lots of confidence, made so many amazing friends, and quickly learned that you get fit to play derby, not the other way around! I play as a Jammer, but do enjoy blocking when the opportunity arises.

What’s in your kit bag?

Set up Riedel Solaris, Role line Killer plate, Radar Halo wheels. 187 pads and S1 lifer in teal
