For most of its history Roller Derby has been more spectacle than sport. It was on national television in the 1950′s and 60′s — but a sort of pro wrestling on skates. It disappeared for decades. But its back and it is going places.
“From an underground alternative sport to the mainstream,” said Anna Campbell, owner of a new Roller Derby facility in Denton called House of Quad. “And I think facilities like this will help that.”
House of Quad opened in June. It’s the only training facility in Texas dedicated solely to Roller Derby. In fact, there are only two or three in the entire country. Three leagues train in Denton, Men’s, Women’s and a first of its kind in the area Junior League.

The team members of the Muertas Locas, Hickory Street Hooligans and the Main Street Mafia meet several times per week at the Lonestar Indoor Sports Center off Shady Oaks to practice the aggressive contact sport known as roller derby.
The teams form the competitive groups of the North Texas Derby Revolution, which began with nine members three months ago and now has more than 100 active members.
