New York, NY
Gotham Girls was NYC’s first roller derby league, and its seven teams’ popularity has only soared since the 2003 founding, even finding a home on late-night television and pay-per-view broadcasts in 2010 and 2011. If you thought New Yorkers were hard-edged and no-nonsense when they give directions on the street, wait 'til you see them in a bout on the track.
