The 2020 Northern Rivers Revolt roller derby tournament will again be held in Byron Bay at the Cavanbah Centre over March 14–15.

The tournament is in its second year and is a partnership between the Tweed Valley Rollers and the Northern Rivers Roller Derby. The two clubs will play at the tournament as a combined team – the River Valley Rollers.

The Sydney Snipers, the reigning champs, are returning to defend their title.

They will battle against the Killer Bees (Sun State Roller Derby), the Demons (Victorian Roller Derby League), the Nasty Nancies (Brisbane City Rollers) and the Bamshees (Inner West Roller Derby League).

It will be a big weekend of roller derby with games starting on the hour from 9am on both Saturday and Sunday.
