Derby Girls Pt. 1: Roller Derby Explained

in: hosted by WatchMojo

Derby Girls Pt. 1: Roller Derby Explained Originating in the United States, Roller Derby is a fairly brutal contact sport played on roller skates. The sport received mainstream success and increased legitimacy between the 1930s and 1970s, with games eventually being broadcast on television. However the sport petered out at that point, only to be revived decades later. Contemporary teams are primarily composed of females, and most are self-organized grass-roots leagues. In this video, WatchMojo.com speaks to some derby girls to learn more about the aim of the game, its rules, and we even learn more about how the game got started. For more information, click Here
