Roller Derby is new and young in the United Kingdom but growing at a rapid pace. David Coxsell aka Spida brings 98 pages of candid and posed photos of rollergirls with quotes and interviews.

Over a three month period in the later part of 2008, David travelled up and down the country visiting groups of girls who are curently active in a growing sport. The sport is known as Roller Derby, is played on quad skates and is taking the UK by storm.

His aim was to capture images to help illustrate the wonderful world of Roller Derby for all those who are new and old to it.

“Roller Derby is a hard hitting full contact sport for women of all ages, size and shape. That means almost anyone can get involved so take a look inside and see if it appeals to you. If it does grab hold of a pair of skates, seek out your nearest local Roller Derby League and join in with the fun.”

There will be a review here as soon as I get my hands on it!
