About pop

Founded in August 2011, The Parliament of Pain (PoP) is the first and only Flat Track Roller Derby league of The Hague. We play roller derby because it's a fun and exciting combination of skating, speed, strategy, and physical exertion!

We have a single, mixed-gender & mixed-level team, the Aces, and a skilled team of officials: the PoPficials. The league consists of - more or less - 40 skating members, referees, and non-skating officials. We practice 2 to 3 times a week; the training sessions are intense, yet varied and a great workout for both experienced and starting skaters.
