Frequently asked questions

what is BRD?

BRD is Birmingham Roller Derby. We have merged the two women’s Birmingham roller derby leagues, Birmingham Blitz Dames and Central City Roller Derby to form a brand new league in 2021.

How can I join BRD as a new skater or official?

Welcoming new skaters and building a bigger league with more opportunities for development is one of our key motivations in merging. No experience is necessary and some of our most successful international skaters and skating officials joined without ever having tried on roller skates before. 

We hope to be able to welcome new skaters to come and learn derby with us from Autumn 2021. Please contact to express an interest and find out more. 


How can I transfer to BRD?

We are happy to welcome experienced skaters and officials from the wider community. We may have limited space at the moment due to Covid risk guidelines but would still like to hear from you. Please contact to express an interest and find out more.
