Roller Derby Names

Roller Derby names are back in style as the sport is enjoying a resurgence in popularity. Roller Derby traces its roots all the way back to the 1880’s. Back then, marathon skating competitions were held for cash prizes. These races continued into the 1920’s and 1930’s. It was during this time that the skating contests began to be called Roller Derby.

Roller Derby Names and Team Names

Roller Derby also adopted the notion of giving players and teams colorful names just like Professional Wrestlers. Players got classic names like Toughie Brasuhn, Bonnie Thunders, and Scald Eagle. These names made the players stand out and sometimes their names reflected their height, weight, or even hair color. The Teams also shared in colorful and unique names like, Salty Dolls, Tent City Terrors, and The Drop Kick Mollies.

So, we’ve put together this list of Roller Derby names for your enjoyment. Read on to see funny, far flung, and fantastic Roller Derby names.

Roller Derby and Professional Wrestling

It was also by the mid to late 1930’s that physical contact began to work it’s way into Roller Derby. Encouraged by the popularity of professional wrestling, Roller Derby became more and more theatrical. By 1940, More than 5 million people were watching Roller Derby in over 50 cities in the U.S. The largest number of spectators at a Roller Derby match was in 1972. Held at Cominsky Park in Chicago, 50,118 people viewed the match.

As interest in roller derby has grown in recent years, more and more bouts in cities across the country are taking place. It’s considered one of the fastest growing sports in the world. Here are a few things you might not know about playing roller derby.

Roller Derby Basics: Rules of the Game

A few things you should know about roller derby game play:

1.) Each team has five players on the rink at one time: four blockers and one jammer.

2.) All players progress around an oval rollerskating track by skating counter-clockwise.

3.) Jammers score points by overlapping opposing players on the rink.

4.) Most teams are made up of all females, but that’s not always the case. All male and junior unisex teams are beginning to grow in popularity as well.

5.) Jammers wear stars on their helmets.

6.) Bouts, or roller derby matches, have fun names too like “Night of the Rolling Dead.”

7.) Roller derby might be an Olympic sport soon.

— Tim Moodie

Truth be told, Tim Moodie has never played Roller Derby, but he spent over 30 years in the toy business as a designer, developer and inventor. He is responsible for naming characters like Wes Champion, Anne Fisher-King, Dr. Jennings Hyde, Jean Splicer, Bob Rimkist, and many more.
