LR Cup

A big thank you from all of us at Nottingham Roller Derby to everyone who came along and supported LRCup18 and made it such an amazing day. We promise as soon as we’re planning for 2019 we’ll let you know. Big sweaty hugs all round!


It’s the sparkliest day in the roller derby calendar! The third installment of the Louisey Rider Cup is happening on 28th April 2018.

The LRC celebrates the life of our teammate Louise Wright, aka Louisey Rider #66, who was sadly taken from us in a cycling accident in 2014. If you knew Louise you’ll immediately understand why a day of roller derby followed by a massive party is the best way to remember her, and if you didn’t you’ll experience a day that encapsulates Louise’s spirit.

You can read more about Louise in our members’ blog posts:

Louise’s Legacy

Spirit of the Afterparty

The last two years have raised a total of £7,000 for road safety charity Brake, and we’ll be supporting them again this year, so let’s get past that £10,000 milestone!

This event is family friendly so feel free to bring your little ones along.
