Here’s what’s in store for CRD at Champs 2016

The countdown to British Champs 2016 has begun! And, Croydon Roller Derby are proud (and totally excited) to announce that Riot Squad will be competing in Tier 2 UKRDA National South division of the British Championships 2016.

In 2015 Riot Squad proved to be fearsome opponents having competed and triumphed against every team they faced in Tier 3 Regional East Division. Although the team didn’t take the top spot in playoffs against the formidable Birmingham Blitz Dames, a slight reshuffle within the tournament means the Squad has moved up.

It’ll be a challenging year for Riot Squad but 2015 proved they are worthy opponents. The 2016 season will see Croydon’s finest take on a host of teams including London Rockin’ Rollers, South West Angels of Terror and Bristol Roller Derby in a series of games taking place across the South of England.

The team will be training hard to bring their A game to the track. In just under one month Riot Squad and their loyal supporters will be heading to Portsmouth in the first of many games as they compete for the title of Tier 2 champions and the chance to move up.
