NMRD Object of the Month: Glasgow Roller Derby vs Vagine Regime Bout Programme

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.

At its most base roots, roller derby has gender and LGBT+ policies that are the most progressive in any sport. It is a grassroots sport that welcomes all identities. The Vagine Regime is a community within this sport that has taken off and spread all across the world, from North America, to the U.K., and to Australia. The Vagine Regime is a collection of players who form local teams throughout the U.K. The Vagine Regime is not simply a collection of teams, but a culture that celebrates and takes pride in the LGBTQI+ identities of its’ players.
