At a time when roller derby’s popularity is expanding at a rapid rate, Wolverhampton Honour Rollers are one of many roller derby leagues emerging from around the UK. As women and men alike discover a sport that encompasses so many individuals with so little effort.
Founded in 2010, the Wolverhampton Honour Rollers are like most teams… hard working, devoted, passionate, dedicated and welcoming. But as with all good roller derby teams, our members are not easily defined.
We are not all sports fanatics and we are not all wannabe rebels without a cause (but some maybe). But no matter what walk of life we come from, we all pull together to work hard and play hard. Not to mention party hard after a good day’s bout! It’s all in a day’s work after all.
Our members are an integral part of the team from the ground up, with all members encouraged to take an active part in fundraising, promotion, merchandising, recruiting and all the other roles that help to make a team successful.
Helping to form an active and social community within the league as well as benefiting the team as a whole.
Plus, although a predominantly female sport, there is room for the guys to get involved in some form too. From refereeing to officiating, and any other number of roles, that help make the team tick on a daily basis.
Since the revival of roller derby in the UK, back in 2006, the sport has gone from strength to strength, and Wolverhampton Honour Rollers aim to be at the heart of things to come.
Now recognised as an official sport in the UK and with plenty of competition in the Midlands alone, not to mention the rest of the country and the world, there are many goals to aim for and many targets to achieve.
With an ever growing roster of skaters and a motivation to become the best we can be, there is no telling how far the Honour Rollers can go.
But one thing’s for sure… we’ll have fun getting there!
