The Bay Rollers, Byron Bay’s own women’s roller derby team, is back on the track for 2015 and set to play the Coffs Coast Derby Dolls at home on March 28.
Now in their fifth year, The Bay Rollers are keen to continue their unbroken winning streak against the Coffs Coast Derby Dolls.
Played on roller skates, women’s roller derby is a full-contact, fast action game where players use their bodies to assist their teammates while trying to ‘take out’ the opposition.
‘We’re excited to be playing our first game of the year in front of a home crowd,’ says Bay Rollers captain Slingshot Polkadot. ‘We’ve got a different team from the last time we played Coffs in 2014 so are looking forward to having a loud cheer squad to get behind us.’
The Bay Rollers won’t just be having any old cheer squad at the bout – the team will have Byron’s own competitive cheerleading squad, Epic Cheer, providing the half-time entertainment.
The Bay Rollers versus Coffs Coast Derby Dolls Saturday March 28. Doors open 6.30pm, game starts 7pm.
Byron Regional Sports and Cultural Complex, 249 Ewingsdale Road.
