About Us 10

Worcester Roller Derby (WoRD) is a non-profit, skater owned & operated roller derby league in Worcester, Massachusetts.

As the first roller derby league in Worcester (est. 2011, re-est. 2016) our purpose is to promote the sport of roller derby, develop women’s athleticism, and establish strong connections to the wider community of Worcester.  This is accomplished through holding local roller derby bouts, recruiting and training new members, providing weekly practices, and staying active with local clubs, events and non-profits.

    Hi there,
    I currently skate with the Boulder County Bombers in Longmont CO as a ShrapNellie ( C team) and I plan to be moving back east in the next few months. I will be making a few weekend visits in the meantime and was wondering if I might be able to sqeeze in a practice with you when im out there.
    Is this a possibility? Is there someone I can talk to about specifics?
    Hopefully Ill get a chance to skate with you all in the near future.

    Hi Ladies,
    I have a proposal for you. I recently became part of a sub committee for Preservation Worcester. They are having an event on June 2nd at the under ground tunnel in Worcester (near the old Trade High School). The name of the event is Glow Ball. We have all sorts of great things planned, some of which are pretty unusual, like a duck tape artist, music like out of the broadway show Stomp and more. I have always admired you ladies and I suggested that this might be something that would interest you. You could wear glow lights and roll into the tunnel. It would help us and promote you with some fun people of Worcester including some mucky mucks! Let me know if this interests you.
    I can be reached at 508-326-1159 or by email at swood016@aol.com

    We would love to know you better. Our church supports lgbt asylum seekers during the time that they are not allowed to work. WE pay for their housing and food. we are having a golf tournament to raise money and we would love to have the golfers among you participate. Also, maybe some of our asylum seekers might want to enjoy roller derby? Consider attending our planning session on July 13, Monday at 6pm. We will ahve dinner and hang out. No charge. Meet our asylum seekers, know more about our work, and see how we might work together. We met you at Worcester Pride last year and have been interested in chatting more. Peace, Pastor Judy Hanlon, gracelift@aol.com

    Hello, I am a volunteer with the 2016 New England Ride for Kids – a charity motorcycle ride on Sunday, August 28, 2016 at BOSE Headquarters in Framingham to support the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. We are a fully insured, police escorted, family friendly loop ride that allows the kids fighting brain tumors to literally ride with our motorcyclists. We are expecting 300-500 motorcyclists, vendors, DJ and MC on site, as well as a classic car show. It’s a great cause and a fun way to spend the morning. We provide free breakfast and lunch to all on site. We would love to have the women of Worcester Roller Derby be present in some way to promote your organization but also to add a celebratory community feeling to our event. Can we connect to discuss how you might participate? Anna Tesmenitsky, 617-999-0306
