It’s not just in movies – Roller Derby is a real contact sport in the US. Games consists of a series of short “jams” in which two roller skating “jammers” score points by lapping members of the opposing team. Both teams attempt to block the opposing jammer, often with hilarious (if slightly bruising) results. New York’s league (April–Nov), the Gotham Girls Roller Derby, features four teams – Brooklyn Bombshells, Queens of Pain, Manhattan Mayhem, and the Bronx Gridlock. Games take place in venues around the city.
