Description

The Black Rose Rollers (BRR) is a roller derby league based in Hanover, Pennsylvania. Founded in 2010, the league consists of two teams which compete against teams from other leagues.

History

About Us

The Black Rose Rollers league was founded by Kim Underwood, also known as Gogo Tenenbomb, with the assistance of several close friends in May 2010. Although it was originally seen by some as a silly dream to make Hanover a more exciting place, their idea quickly became a reality. Through hard work and dedication, this core group of individuals brought together women within the community to reach a common goal. They not only provided Hanover with a new and exciting past time but also became better individual people through the relationships they built with others and the community. In December 2012 BRR gained membership as a full member league with the Women's Flat Track Roller Derby Association (WFTDA). BRR is honored to be competing at a higher level and is excited to see what the future holds for the league. Please follow them on their journey as they continue to rise in the national rankings and grow as a team..

Mission Statement

Black Rose Rollers is an all-female roller derby league who seeks to promote amateur Women’s Flat Track Roller Derby. Through training and fostering of the sport based on the syllabus set forth by WFTDA, we create a positive social environment for women, encourage personal growth and sportsmanship among all members and supporters, and aim to improve and inspire our community and its surrounding areas through these means.
