The Derby Dolls are Los Angeles' premier all-female, banked track roller derby league. It was founded in October 2003 by Rebecca Ninburg (a.k.a.Demolicious) and Wendy Templeton (a.k.a. Thora Zeen), the Derby Dolls are a league of more than 150 adult and junior skaters and volunteers, divided into teams who skate on a banked track.
Embodying the do-it-yourself ethos of modern roller derby, as resurrected in Austin, Texas in 2000, the Derby Dolls are an entirely volunteer-run organization, relying on the support of their fans and community. The Derby Dolls take all the thrills of the old game and update it with a fresh and feisty new face. And the hits and spills are 100% real. No script can write this kind of action.
The L.A. Derby Dolls also operates the L.A. Junior Derby Dolls for girls ages 7-17, where they will be taught the skating skills, teamwork and strategy needed to play roller derby. Classes for skaters of all skill levels are offered, which can be joined at any time during the season. For more information please visit the http://juniors.derbydolls.com
The Derby Dolls are committed to achieving the highest level of competition, integrity and production quality while enriching the lives of our members and community through sport.
