About Desert Dolls Roller Derby: Established in 2009, Desert Dolls Roller Derby is one of the newest leagues in the Valley. DDRD is made up of every day heroes; teachers, librarians, firefighters and mothers, all of whom are committed to being an all-inclusive and community oriented league. We believe that any woman, no matter her physical prowess, can be a derby girl. What started out as a small group of friends has grown into a league of over 100 strong, independent women all with the same goal in mind: to provide family-friendly entertainment through one of the fastest growing sports in the country.
