Peterborough Area Roller Derby was formed on March 31, 2015 as Area 705 and Peterborough Roller Derby Leagues joined forces for the consolidation and celebration of flat track roller derby in the Peterborough Area, and incorporated as a not-for-profit in 2016. PARD works hard to promote a strong and positive image for local athletes. Home bouts happen at the Douro Arena and Community Centre, while teams also travel across Ontario to compete.
