Hello! We're Roller Derby City, a skater owned and operated business, based in Plymouth, Devon in the South West of England. We started out back in 2010 when our founder Slams, who was already running a small printing company with her husband Dave, took up roller derby. We made some merch for our local team, Plymouth City Roller Derby, and posted it up on our social media. Word grew across the roller derby community and we began to get enquiries from skaters and teams across the UK, so we decided to create Roller Derby City - a place that focussed on meeting the needs of teams, skaters and officials. Over the years we've grown as the community has - adding in new products as and when people ask for them, and we now supply around 350 teams across the UK, Europe and beyond.
WHAT WE DO
We aim to make everything that skaters, officials, coaches and others involved in roller derby need in terms of clothing, uniforms and merchandise. This includes merchandise for your team to sell to your supporters and at your games and events, indivdual custom items - such as scrimmage tops, officials clothing and referee shirts, and team uniforms. We also make roller derby inspired apparel which you can buy direct through our web store. We make everything right here at RDC in Plymouth, which means not only can you be assured that your clothing is made within ethical working conditions, but that when we agree to a deadline with you, we stick to it.
SUPPORT LOCAL ROLLER DERBY
Being skater owned and operated means that supporting the roller derby community is at the heart of what we do. Our current focus is on supporting roller derby events and tournaments as events like this are brilliant ways of growing our sport. If you're running an event then get in touch for more details - we do plan ahead from 3 - 6 months, so the more notice you can give us, the better.
We've been able to grow as business thanks to the support we've received from the community and now our product development is nearly all customer led. If you'd like us to make products that we're not currently doing then we'd love to hear from you! We want to make sure we meet the needs of everyone involved in roller derby and we can only do this with your help.
