Roller Derby is experiencing a nation-wide revival since its grassroots rebirth in Austin, TX in 2001. Originally created in 1935, roller derby has experienced many high and low points throughout the decades, but its most recent incarnation is thriving as groups of tough and beautiful all-girl teams bring back the greatest sport on eight wheels, with a little added punch.
Combining a rock and roll mentality, cheeky penalties, lots of crowd involvement, sassy costuming, and above all, hard-hitting action at break-neck speeds, the new all-girl derby leagues are giving Americans reasons to fall in love with roller derby all over again.
