After a successful launch in March 2009, the Newcastle Roller Derby League has the pleasure of hosting a bout between Sydney’s two top roller derby teams, the Screaming Assault Sirens and the Sydney City CBD ‘viants.
This all female gang of fearless athletes offer more than your average sporting event. This is a full-contact aggressive and hyper-competitive sport, on roller skates. Fresh from the season Grand Final, this rematch is sure to be some of the best roller derby action that Australia has to offer.
The afternoon will also feature a half time show, put on by Newcastle’s Kavon Theatre and NRDL’s very own fear leaders which is guaranteed to be jam packed full of excitement . There will also be a demonstration scrimmage between NRDL’s Members, face painting and plenty of prizes to be won.
The pre-season bout between the Raven Beauties and the Full Bodied Reds, was a sell out event, so grab your tickets fast.
The Newcastle Roller Derby League is a not-for-profit organisation, run by the skaters for the skaters. It is dedicated to promoting the sport of Women’s Flat Track Roller Derby by facilitating the development of athletic ability, sportsmanship and goodwill among league members.
