Roller Derby

“Helpful in terms of level of cover plus due to the interest in the sport and the event we actually got a higher level of cover for no extra cost.  Great to have staff who are enthusiastic about the event they are covering” London Rollergirls11722455_959297750756919_7586252897441133550_o


GB Emergency Medical Services Ltd have been involved in Roller Derby since December 2010 when we were invited to become Medical Sponsor and Cover Provider to the Dorset Roller Girls. Since then we have provided medical cover to literally hundreds of bouts and tournaments across the UK as well as becoming the first UKRDA Endorsed medical team for Roller Derby cover.  Our involvement in Roller Derby has been so much more than “Bout Cover”, Our team have been involved in shaping “Tournament Medical Standards” within the UK and maintain a keen interest in the sport as a whole.  We even have our Derby Names on our Uniforms..

We pride ourselves on being familiar with the WFTDA rules regarding Medical Cover as well as the WFTDA Safety Protocols. We recognise that teams are run “By the Skater, For the Skater” and have to cover the costs of bouts themselves. To this end we provide experienced medical teams to Roller Derby bouts whilst maintaining a realistic yet WFTDA compliant approach.

In 2012 we confirmed our commitment to Roller Derby by becoming the UKRDAs’ first Official Sponsor. As part of this Sponsorship agreement we offer Member Leagues a 10% Discount on the cost of their medical cover. We are currently the only Medical Team able to wear the UKRDA patch on our Roller Derby uniforms and we wear it with immense pride.  GB-EMS also provides Training and Supplies to Roller Derby Leagues – at heavily discounted prices.. get in touch for more information.
