Formed in September 2007 we are one of the longest established Roller Derby leagues in the UK. We train together three/four times a week at Charters Leisure Centre in Ascot, Berkshire where we’re lucky to have our own roller derby track. You can see us play at our home bouting venue: Windsor Leisure Centre, where we host teams from all over the UK and Europe.
We currently have an ‘A’ team: Who Dares Windsor’ a ‘B’ team: ‘The B-Headers’ and a ‘C’ team: ‘The Crown Duels’. Our head coach: Ross Stone (Rollin Stone R) also coaches for Team England (mens & ladies teams). We have 2 Windsor-themed home teams, the Merry Wives (red) and the Hawker Hurricanes (green) you can see them play at Spelthorne Leisure Centre in Staines.
We are members of both the UKRDA and WFTDA.
We are proud to have created the Sur5al roller derby challenge which is now played all around the world.
If you would like to join us a player or an official, get in touch! (Our players range in age from 18 to 44 and live in Windsor, Ascot, Slough, Maidenhead, Bracknell and Reading.) More info below….

Frequently asked questions
I don’t have any skates can I borrow some? – YES, we have plenty of skates, pads and helmets that you can borrow to get you started. We do ask though that you buy your own equipment as soon as possible.
Am I too old for this? – NO, we have skaters in their 20′s, 30′s, 40′s and 50’s. You must be over 18 to join the adult league, but there is no upper age limit.
Is it dangerous? – There are risks as with any sport, but we’ll make sure you’re fully kitted out with good protective knee and elbow pads, wrist guards and a helmet. The first thing we’ll teach you is how to fall safely.
How much does it cost? – Your first session is free, after that we ask £5 per practice. After one month, or sooner if you want to start saving money straight away, you’ll be asked to pay a monthly sub of £35, this covers all practices and games.
What is Roller Derby? – Roller Derby is a full-contact sport played on roller skates, each jam lasts up to 2 minutes and sees 5 players from each team take to the track, each team has a jammer (with the star on their helmet) who scores points for each opposition player she legally passes, the other 4 players are blockers, it’s their job to stop the opposition jammer while assisting their own.
