HRG are proud to announce that they are now UKRDA members.
Being a part of the UK Roller Derby Association means that Hereford Roller Girls can now take part in sanctioned bouts that are regulated to the WFTDA standards. Soon, HRG will be playing other UKRDA teams, contributing to a UKRDA ranking (and making it to the top one day maybe?).
It also means that HRG have access to a huge wealth of knowledge and resources gathered over the years by Roller Derby leagues, so HRG will be supported and guided by the association. The UKRDA has been put together to help grow and promote the sport of Roller Derby and to truly represent British leagues. We are really excited to be a part of making Derby even bigger and more awesome!
In the future, HRG will also get to participate in fantastic tournaments put on by the UKRDA such as the Rollergirls vs Rollergirls event at the Tattoo Freeze taking place on Sunday 12th January. HRG won’t be playing in this year’s event sadly but there will be a few of us cheering them on from the sidelines!
