Can you use roller blades for playing roller derby?

inasaurus asked:

I’m quite interested in roller derby and I’ve been thinking of setting up a club for it in my school. The thing is, where I live, roller derby isnt popular so roller skates/quad skates/derby skates are not sold here and are very difficult to find. So I was wondering if it’ll be alright to use roller blades for roller derby?

Rule from the WFTDA

3.9.1 Players must wear quad roller skates only. Players may not wear inline or any other type
of skate.”

+ Everyone will laugh at you.

Use the internets

Plus check the rink nearest you. They may have a shop.

Good luck


No, as a general rule, Derby Players HATE roller bladers.

If you find it hard to get rollerskates where you are, go to or
