Who Are We?
The Knights of Oldham are an independent men’s Roller Derby team based in Oldham, Greater Manchester. Roller Derby is one of the fastest growing contact sports in the UK. Integrated into the British Roller Sports Federation, the sport is supported by both National and International governing bodies, the UK Roller Derby Association (UKRDA), and the Men’s Roller Derby Association (MRDA).
Run by the skaters for the skaters, the Knights are a not-for-profit organization. All the money we make from skater subs, tickets sales and merchandise is invested back into the club. As well as establishing ourselves as a competitive league within the Roller Derby community, we’re also committed to supporting and engaging the Oldham community, with a strong focus on attracting both fans and skaters from the area.
Formed with the support of our sister league – the Rainy City Roller Girls – the Knights of Oldham share their core values of competitiveness and sustainability and we are working hard to enhance the Thunderdome’s reputation as a centre of excellence for Roller Derby in the UK.
