What is roller derby?

Roller derby is a full-contact sport played by women on old-school quad roller skates. The teams play both offense and defence simultaneously. Modern roller derby is an international sport mainly dominated by all-female amateur teams. There are, however, a growing number of male, co-ed, and junior teams as well. Roller derby is one of the fastest growing women’s sports in the world.

Wanna hire us?

We have many hard-working and motivated people ready to volunteer in your events or happenings. We have years of experience in volunteering in, for example, summer festivals and other large events, as well as smaller private events. We’ve done selling and serving, as well as cleaning and building. All the feedback has always been positive and people have asked us to come back next year! We use the earned funds to pay for travelling expenses, rent, and other league functions.

If you’re looking for hard-working and reliable volunteers, don’t hesitate to contact us at sponsor@helsinkirollerderby.com

It’s also possible to borrow derby gear from us! We deal with gear-loans case-by-case, but we’d appreciate a €20 fee per pair.
