Object of the Month: July 2019
Roller derby turns 10 in the UK! The oldest leagues in Europe turned ten in 2016–17 including the London Rockin' Rollers, who hosted the first intraleague game in Europe playing the Birmingham Blitz Dames in July 2007. This PuzzLRR was a commemorative puzzle book inspired by the history of LRR available at the Old School Rules Game they held for their tenth birthday in 2017.

Established in 2012, the National Museum of Roller Derby (NMRD) is the UK’s first permanent collection of ephemera and memorabilia relating to the sport of Women’s Flat Track Roller Derby.
In 2016, to celebrate our new permanent home in Glasgow Women's Library's new Bridgeton HQ, we bring you an ‘Object of the Month’ from our ever expanding collections.
We want your old team shirts, flyers, zines and other paraphernalia to illustrate the remarkable development of the sport in the UK. Keep an eye on our page for future announcements on how to donate items to the Museum.
