Roller derby is a contact sport played on quad skates. It's one of the fastest growing women's sports around, played by a large number of amateur leagues worldwide.
Two teams of five members skate in the same direction around a track. Each team designates a scoring player (the 'jammer') who scores point by lapping members of the opposing team. The teams try to assist their own jammer while trying to prevent the opposing jammer getting through.
