The Roller Derby Girls of Beirut are first movers – there are no other Roller Derby team in the whole country of Lebanon. Initiated with GAME’s support in 2015 the team meets up every Sunday to give it their best on the skates.
Roller Derby is a contact sport originating from the United States. Two teams of five face each other, rolling in the same direction on the same track. Although it is not very known in Lebanon there is no doubt about the value it brings – just watch the clips below and judge for yourself.
