MRDA Championships - Cymru Clash anyone else watching?

Unlikely, but anyone else following this on the live stream? I am thrilled to see women playing for quite a few teams at this level. The MRDA non-discrimination policy lives up to its name and content <3

EDIT: MRDA = Men's Roller Derby Association , hence my enthusiasm for seeing female players at the Championships :-)

I admit I hadn't heard of this before - but when I searched on it I was impressed at the handsome logo! (See it on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/---/1888614441407493/ )

I haven't watched much roller derby other than when it turns up as a plot in TV shows (at least two popular crime shows used it as a plot device, and there was a Cupcake Wars episode themed on it {wry grin}), but I'm glad to see there are co-ed teams now.

Ah, roller derby then. Thanks for that, I had no idea and did not feel like looking it up.

There are co-ed teams as well, but these are officially men's teams, the non-discrimination policy states that they will not discriminate based on gender, in a practical sense this means no one will inquire after your gender preference, you just have to feel like you identify most with the league / team you are playing for, even if you are in essence female.
