Roller Derby Vancouver 2014

This weekend, the elbows will be jabbing and the girls will be flying as another season of roller derby in Vancouver kicks off on April 5, 2014 at the Kerrisdale Arena.

This sport really has it all, with tough chicks battling each other to score points, cow bells and air horns blasting from an enthusiastic crowd, and a 19+ beer garden to top it all off.

For $20 (or $15 if you buy online) a ticket will get you a full night of action-packed entertainment. On April 5, the season opener will be featuring a doubleheader with The Faster Pussycats going against fan favourite Public Frenemy.

The second bout will feature the Riot Girls will be facing the Bad Reputations for the first time since winning the Mercury Shield Championships last year. This grudge match is bound to be full of fast-paced action and hard hits.

And, if you have no idea what you may have just read, there is no need to worry. Roller Derby can be a little confusing (here’s a guide to the rules if you want to catch up), but the spirit of the event, the enthusiasm from the crowd, and the ass-kicking element of the sport make it even better than what you could ever expect.
