Richter City Roller Derby

Richter City Roller Derby was established in 2007 by a group of women who decided that Wellington needed a piece of the international roller derby revival.

After nearly two years of hard work recruiting, training and fundraising, Richter City was launched onto the Wellington sports calendar in March 2009 with its first exhibition bout “The Grudgemaker” at the Wellington Basketball Association.

RCRD quickly outgrew its initial venue, shifting to the TSB Bank Arena to complete its first competitive season, as well as hosting New Zealand’s first inter-city roller derby bout “Skate Highway One” in December against Auckland’s Pirate City Rollers.

In total over 4000 tickets were sold for roller derby bouts in Wellington in 2009, demonstrating the growing appetite for a new kind of sport.

So far 2010 has been another huge year for RCRD. The league is growing, with more than 50 members.
