Definitely not!!!!! I play with many many girls that age and older (some nearly 50).

I just started roller derby last week and I think it is going to be the most positive decision I've made in a good while. Great way to let out your frustration and aggression but still get those endorphins kickin'. And it gives me a reason to be kind and respectful to my body. I don't really know what the heck I'm doing but the derby chicks are super motivating and helpful.
Anyway, hello, and I'm glad I found y'all.
Congrats on making the jump to join! I didn't see there was a thread about derby but I'm glad to see it. I'm just starting my 3rd bouting season - joining was definitely one of the best decisions I've made. Now I'm looking forward to not just literally throwing my weight around on the track and becoming a proper powerhouse.
