3:00pm Wednesday 30th October 2013 in Sport
HEREFORD Roller Girls have taken a substantial step forward by being admitted into the UKRDA.
“The UKRDA is the official governing body of roller derby here in the UK,” said Zoe Butler, Hereford Roller Girls’ chairman and head coach.
“So to officially be part of it is great news for Hereford Roller Girls, and Roller Derby in Herefordshire. “It means we can now compete in officially sanctioned bouts and represent our sport on a national and international stage. “Being part of the UKRDA means that HRG plays a vital part in the progression and development of roller derby.”
The club had to gain references from other member clubs and provide documentation to support their application.
“I’m very proud of everyone,” said Butler. “It’s a fantastic achievement for a club that has only just turned two.”
