HISTORY
Early 2011, five persons, who found each others through the social network, met in a bar in Namur determined to create a roller derby team in the neighbourhood of their lovely city. They found a venue, bought their skates and.. there we were: Namur Roller Girls was born!

Trained by the talented Brussels Derby Pixies, we made our first moves at the inauguration of our lovely derbysisters from Charleroi, Blackland Rockin’ K-Rollers. It was the first time we put our skates on, the first falls, the first bruises and.. love at first sight.

At the beginning, we didn’t know much about roller derby. We learned through websites, YouTube videos and then, month after month, we had the opportunitiy to learn from our sisterleagues at bootcamps and joined practices. We’ve been working hard, practicing over and over what we learned – and now, here we are. After a couple of freshmeat days, we are now 30: 26 derbygirls and 4 referees!
