The Spindletop Roller Girls is a roller derby league based in Beaumont, Texas. Founded in 2008, the league consists of two teams and an All Star team that competes against teams from other leagues.

Founded in November 2008,[1] by January 2009 the league had ten skaters and was hoping to recruit more, in order to put a bouting team together.[2] The formation of the Bayou Outlaw Rollergirls, based in Orange, Texas, was inspired by the Spindletop league, and the two maintained close links.[3] For the 2012 season, the Bayou Outlaws merged with Spindletop, becoming a new home team for the league.[4]

Spindletop was accepted into the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program in January 2010,[5] and became a full member of the WFTDA in December.[6]
