Roller derby is a high-speed, high-adrenaline, full-contact skating sport. The rules of roller derby are simple; two teams of five people skate around an oval track, with one skater from each team attempting to pass the others in order to score points.

Protectivity can provide insurance for roller derby in the UK and abroad. For those heading overseas, our Sports Travel Insurance covers you in much the same way your normal travel insurance would, protecting you for things such as lost baggage, flight delays, and cancellation. However, we also take your sport into account, covering you for emergency medical expenses, repatriation, and sports equipment.


If you are playing roller derby in the UK, our Sports Accident Insurance policy is the one for you. This offers things such as Income Protection, personal accident, physiotherapy and dental fees cover.

    How it works

    We understand the risks when participating in sport and the difficulties that can arise following a sports accident. Our Sports Accident Insurance provides benefits that will aid in rehabilitation and recovery as well as provide income protection should you be unable to work for a period of time.

    With more than 20 years experience our policies have been created to offer peace of mind should you sustain injury following a sports accident.

    Unless we have labelled a sport or activity as “Non Competitive” or “Excluding Competition” then you will be covered to compete in your sport.

    Where a sport is labelled with “Non competitive” you will often find another option which says “competitive” or “including competition”
