OUR MISSION STATEMENT

Oxford Wheels of Gory are committed to promoting the sport of women's flat track roller derby. We will do this with respect, honesty and dedication in a friendly, supportive and welcoming atmosphere. We recruit members from Oxford and the surrounding areas; in an effort to bring more women and men to the sport of roller derby.

Our goal is to be a respected and leading roller derby team in UK whilst promoting and supporting the sport at a local and national level. Retaining a not-for-profit status and DIY-ethos, we aim to be an all-inclusive, welcoming, democratically-run organisation following the officiating guidelines and rules set down by the WFTDA. We welcome skaters aged 18+ from all backgrounds irrespective of race, colour, creed or sexual orientation. We aim to foster a supportive atmosphere, maintaining high safety standards and developing skills and athleticism while promoting teamwork as an essential factor for success.
