Founded in 2003, Gotham Girls Roller Derby helped lead the charge to bring the American-born sport of roller derby back to the national limelight. A group of 10 women inspired by Austin’s TXRD Lonestar Rollergirls quickly grew to a fleet of 64 skaters on four teams, with nine referees, four mascots and countless support staff. By the end of the league’s inaugural season, monthly bouts were drawing 1800+ fans to a rundown disco skating rink in the South Bronx. Lines out the door and around the block were the norm.

In the years since, the league has taken the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association national championship title three times. Several GGRD skaters are members of Team USA Roller Derby.
