Pivot of Oz - WA Roller Derby

This event has passed!

WA Roller Derby presents Pivot of Oz

We’re not in Kansas anymore. WA Roller Derby is in the wonderful land of Oz for its first intraleague bout of the season. In this dream world your favourite teams Sonic Doom and Electric Scream have new players, new captains and an all new look. Favourites such as Tay Q Down, Juicy M Suffer, Steely Neil and Karmen Adairya will still be there and so will WARD’s newest All Star Hot Wheels. Adding to the line-up will be new heroes such as Dotty Deranged, Darth Vida, Madamage and Kalgoorlie skaters including Bang Bang Lou Lou.

A roller derby bout is a long yellow brick road of tactics, speed and agility. There may be no ruby roller skates to get these skaters home but WARD girls bring their brain, courage and, perhaps most importantly, heart to each bout. Which team will have the strength and skill to claim victory?

As always, the night will have market stalls, merchandise and entertainment as well as some of the State’s newest derby girls in action. “This will be a really exciting bout just because there’s so many new players coming into our league,” president Liz “Whisky Sour” Beresford said. “With our experienced players to support them they will add new depth to the teams and we can’t wait to see what they can do on the track. “It’s especially great to see skaters from Kalgoorlie and Mandurah selected, WARD is now a truly State wide organisation and the Gold City Rollers and Dread Pirate Rollers will be valued additions.”

Be trackside to see the Screams and Dooms new uniforms unveiled, see their new players and cheer loud for your favourite skaters. WARD’s last bout sold out so roller derby fans should get their tickets early to avoid disappointment.

Doors open 6pm, first whistle at 7pm.

Tickets: $11 adults, $6 children from Rolloways, Talk To Me Derby, Planet Video and www.warollerderby.com.au.
