Introducing the Seaside Siren Roller Girls

Southend does Roller Derby too ... and it comes in the form of the Seaside Siren Roller Girls ...

The Seaside Siren Roller Girls are based in sunny Southend-on-Sea, Essex. We like long skates down the seafront, 99 Flakes, and cheap beer… LOTS of cheap beer!

We’ve been skating as SSRG since November 2009, but the league’s co-founders have been skating and learning derby long before then. We’re actively recruiting at the moment and are consistently building in numbers. Unsurprisingly, as soon as anyone hears about our sport they want in, and to be fair, Essex girls were clearly made for derby!

We have a wide range of skating abilities on the league, although ALL our girls are getting more awesome with every practice. We hope to be up to bouting level before long, although it’s important for us to also take it slow and steady and get REALLY good before we make our public debut. We want to come out hot!

Our 5 year plan is pretty simple; we’re going to be WFTDA certified league and try to take over the world! Check out our website - - to learn more about us or get in contact.

All the UK derby leagues have been mega encouraging of us and have invited us into the derby community with open arms, so we’d just like to thank all of you for that. We love you all and can’t wait to knock you down on the track!
