Established in 2012, the National Museum of Roller Derby (NMRD) is the UK’s first permanent collection of ephemera and memorabilia relating to the sport of Women’s Flat Track Roller Derby. Our ‘Object of the Month’ celebrates objects from our ever expanding collections.
We want your old team shirts, flyers, zines and other paraphernalia to illustrate the remarkable development of the sport in the UK. Keep an eye on the Facebook page for future announcements on how to donate items to the Museum.

The Glasgow league was rebranded as Glasgow Roller Derby rather than Glasgow Roller Girls in 2012 to reflect the athletic direction and ambitions of the club and to be more inclusive of all gender identities. Auld Reekie Roller Girls (Edinburgh) officially changed their name to Auld Reekie Roller Derby in 2018.
