The London Rockin’ Rollers!
London’s original red and black army are one of the UK’s oldest leagues, full WFTDA members and continue to represent the very essence of derby spirit. LRR have been a key part of UK tournaments this year, the All Stars have just finished a challenging season in Brit Champs seeing some tough competition, and LRR’s Rising Stars led a successful campaign at Eastbourne Extreme 2015 coming in an impressive 2nd place!
LRR’s Rising Stars are the next generation of London’s finest Rockin’ Rollers. We are excited to see what the ladies from the Capital bring to the table and wish to offer them a warm welcome into….Attack of the B Teams!
We caught up with some of LRR’s Rising Stars to find out some more about them…
Despiser Minnelli, Justice, Dirty DC, Brute, Sneakachu, Hooton Intolerant
