Fresh from their epic battle to conquer America as the first non-US team to compete in the Roller Derby Championships and hot on the heels of a successful documentary series featuring the highs and lows of players from the team, the immense London Rollergirls are showcasing their unique brand of roller derby in a rare international tournament in the UK.
The London Rollergirls A team, London Brawling, will take on Rocky Mountain Rollergirls (US), Detroit Derby Girls (US) and Toronto Roller Derby (Canada) in a weekend-long tournament. All the teams are ranked within the worlds top 30, and have never faced each other before, so this will be a battle of pride, power and skills on rollerskates.
With talent recently featured in the Extreme Sports documentary series ‘Roller Derby Til I Die’ – this guarantees to be roller derby of the highest calibre available to UK audiences.
Roller derby is a full contact sport played predominantly by women and the London Rollergirls are currently ranked #7 in the world. Visitors can expect a high-impact, rollerskating bonanza complete with thrills, spills and familyfriendly fun.
As well as rough and tumble roller derby action, there will be merch stalls, DJs and entertainment suitable for all audiences, and a special afterparty on Sunday.
