Rollergirls to battle at Rotary Complex

Stratford Gazette

The first roller derby game to ever be held in Stratford will roll out this Saturday, June 9 at the RBC Arena at the Stratford Rotary Complex.

The city’s own league, Festival City Rollergirls, will host the event, which will feature its low-contact team, Stratford LOCO, as they take on Kitchener LOCO in “The Battle of Highway 7/8.”

“After competing in bouts in other cities, we’re so happy be able to bring the sport to our own home,” said Festival City Rollergirls president Tamara “Little Miss Twister” Bridge. “Many people have talked with us about roller derby in the 18 months we’ve started the league. Not everyone wants to skate with us, but many have expressed an interest in seeing us play. And now’s their chance to experience the game in their own backyard.”

Proceeds from ticket sales will support the Huron-Perth chapter of Autism Ontario.

Roller derby has experienced a world-wide explosion of popularity in the past few years, having found its way to Perth County in March 2011.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the event starts at 7 p.m. Advanced tickets are $5, and free for children 12 and younger accompanied by an adult. Tickets are available at The Pour House, the Christmas Store and the Magic Box, or by emailing stratfordrollergirls@gmail.com. Tickets will also be available at the door for $8.
