In May 2014, the Basel Derbygirl Kollektiv met for the first time, determined to bring roller derby to Basel - and, in true Derby-spirit, we've done it all ourselves: training, coaching, promotion, and management. Since those early days, we have grown to 25 members and counting, and are proud to be a truly diverse and multicultural team, welcoming players of all genders, races, age, sexuality and skill.
#1 flat-track roller derby in all of Basel, Switzerland. Renegades on wheels since 2014.

On Saturday, 13 May we are hosting
Stuttgart Valley Roller Derby.
