Across The Capital
Roller derby is a sport that not everyone will be acquainted with due to its underground nature but Hollywood film ‘Whip It’ brought it into the forefront and it has been on the rise in the UK for a number of years.
It’s an all-girls sport on roller skates, where teams race around a track to pass each other scoring points as they do and not to mention the occasional knock-out action.
Edinburgh’s local team the Auld Reekie Roller Girls (ARRG) have done their bit in building the sport’s reputation, helping out local charities with bake sales at the bouts (matches) and now pull in a crowd of over 700 people when they play at Meadowbank.
