To play & referee roller derby you will need specialised protective equipment:

      • Quad skates
      • Helmet (skate helmet, not bicycle)
      • Mouth guard (not required for referees)
      • Elbow guards
      • Wrist guards
      • Knee pads


These are the basics and there are a huge variety of types and styles of equipment to suit all body shapes, skating styles, floor surfaces and budgets! S2D2 suggest if you’re new to roller derby to come to one of our league open days, see equipment and try a few different types on. We proudly support local derby businesses and can recommended some great places to buy your gear. See our Sponsors here.
