Bruising Banditas Roller Derby

June 2011, the Halifax Bruising Banditas Roller Derby team was born. The first roller derby team to hit the Calderdale and Halifax area, the league was formed to give women ages 18 and up access to one of the fastest growing, most exciting contact sports in the world.

The league was formed by rollergirls from across the West Yorkshire area with a view to creating a team that gives a positive and friendly training environment to skaters of all abilities.

Halifax Bruising Banditas is a non-profit organisation run entirely by their members on a voluntary basis. Our committees are responsible for all aspects of the organisation, from coaching to fundraising, charity work, event management, recruitment and merchandising.

We very excited and honoured to be members of the UKRDA, and are committed to working with other leagues to spread a positive messages about the fabulous sport that is Roller Derby.

In order to keep this amazing team going, in May 2015 The Bruising Banditas will be taking on a half marathon on skates at Skate Mania in Preston! Please donate as much as you can and help us to keep our amazing team skating!
