The Rock and Roller Queens (RRQ) is a roller derby league based in Bogotá, Colombia. Founded in 2009, the league consists of a single team, which competes against teams from other leagues.

The league was founded in December 2009 by María Paola Hernandez, a local graphic designer with experience of roller skating, after she saw the movie Whip It. By late 2011, the league was one of about ten in the country, and the sport was recognised by Colombian Sports Federation.

The league won the first roller derby tournament in Colombia, which was contested by eight teams, in June 2012. In July, it was accepted as the first member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Programme from South America, and it became a full member of the WFTDA in June 2013.
