Zurich City RollerGirlz Roller Derby

The Zurich City RollerGirlz is Switzerland’s first (and so far only) roller derby league. We are constantly on the lookout for new skaters, so if you are female and older than 18, this could be the sport for you. Don’t worry if you don’t know how to skate, we will teach you!

What is roller derby?
Flat track roller derby is a fast-paced all-female full contact team sport played on quad roller skates. This is not the sport you may remember from the 70s and 80s US “sports entertainment” scripted TV shows. Today’s roller derby is real and requires speed, strategy and athleticism.

Any ladies interested in joining the team please pm me or you can also check out our website for more info. We train every Monday and Thursday evening in Zurich – if you would like to come along to see if roller derby is for you please let me know.
We are also looking for male and female referees and volunteers, so please feel free to get in touch if this would be of interest to you.

See you on the track!

I think the referee has his mind on other things.


Can't roller-skate and have never even heard of the sport before, so I can't volunteer as a ref but it sounds like something worth watching.

Re: Zurich City RollerGirlz Roller Derby

haha, well the girl with the pink helmet is his wife, so I guess that's ok!

We are planning on having at least one home game (bout) and a few scrimmages towards the summer/autumn - I will post more info as soon as possible.

We can of course teach potential refs to skate and the rules.
