More about the CaiRollers
CaiRollers is Egypt’s first roller derby team, established in September 2012. Made up of local and ex-pat women, their aim is to grow the team and empower women without drawing negative attention or attracting discrimination. In June 2013 the team held their first intra-league bout and are now looking for teams to play.
In a country where it can be rare to see a woman driving or showing her shoulders, and a pair of skates costs several times the average monthly wage, the CaiRollers have overcome more than their fair share of challenges with the help and support of other roller derby teams across the globe.
And that’s where Newcastle Roller Girls come in!
At Skate Like an Egyptian on Saturday 9 November we’ll be raising money to help the CaiRollers achieve their goals, so come along, splash out on a raffle ticket and help us support our derby sisters in Egypt.
Catch the Cairollers on Facebook, or visit their website.

Sky Tyne & Wear article recorded at Daylight Slayings
Sky Tyne & Wear came to Daylight Slayings on 24th March. They took a peek at what we do & interviewed Brie Larceny and Kalamity James about Newcastle Roller Girls in particular and derby life in general.
Canny Belters vs. ARRG Cannon Belles - Brie Larceny attacking ARRGs wall
NRG were excited to unleash some of our newer skaters on the world with a fantastic warm up intraleague match, the Christmas Crack Hers vs. the Slay Belles, & they didn’t disappoint. A final score of Slay Belles 53 – 70 Christmas Crack Hers really got the Canny Belters in the mood.

Skate fast, turn left
Earlier this year, we were approached by media student Mai Ngo asking if she could make a film about us as part of her course. Why the devil not, we thought. So Mai came to some practices, recorded some interviews, stalked some skaters & filmed a couple of bout. The result was Skate Fast, Turn Left & you can see it on YouTube.
