Fast-paced action, full-contact blocks, and lively banter are par for the course at Boston Derby Dames. As the area's only WFTDA-ranked, all-female flat track roller derby league, Boston Derby Dames spreads awareness of and passion for the sport of roller derby. More than 100 skaters participate as league members of four home teams, two travel teams, and a training program. Regularly scheduled bouts pit home teams against each other in high-octane displays of speed, physicality, and split-second strategic thinking. Energetic and entertaining bouts earned the players and the league features in publications such as the Boston Globe and the Boston Herald.
