Roller Derby comes to Byron Bay this Friday when teams from Byron’s own Bay Rollers, the Beach Babes and the Hillbilly Hotties go head to head at the Byron Sports Complex.

Featuring skaters from The Bay Rollers with members of the Tweed Valley Rollers, this will be a night of full contact women’s roller derby and a fight for hometown pride. 

The Bay Rollers want you to pick your team and support the Beach Babes from Byron, Pottsville and Lennox or the Hotties from the Hills of Mullum and Ocean Shores.

In good news for skaters under 18, the Bay Rollers have recently secured funding from Sport and Recreation, NSW Department of Education and Communities, to start their own Junior Roller Derby league, which will start in late 2014.

To introduce Junior Roller Derby to Byron, the Bay Rollers have invited the Twin Town Derby Brats to provide halftime entertainment. 

With food, drinks, entertainment and prizes for best dressed, head along to the Byron Sports Complex on Friday.
