Non-US/Canadian Derby Roundup: 22nd/23rd July Edition

As is traditional, we’re bringing you another roundup of the upcoming Roller Derby this weekend from across the world. As always, we’re using Flat Track Stats for much of this information – for regions with less good coverage, we also do a bit of intensive searching using a tool which scans the Facebook events of Roller Derby leagues known to Derby Listing.

Predictions of bouts are from FTS, if possible, and from our own SRD Rank where FTS cannot make predictions (for example: Latin America, or non-MRDA men’s bouts). Our new SRD Rank for July is out (pending updates as late scores trickle into FTS), with the usual map mode, score predictions and the rest, for all teams in the world. (It also has some WFTDA rankings, including the 31st June ranking, as well as SRDRank.)

If we’ve missed you from our roundup, please let us know! [Or add yourselves to FTS and/or Derbylisting]
