Roller Derby season final goes old school!

Roller Derby season final goes old school!

Wellington’s Richter City Roller Derby league’s home season final on Saturday 30 August will see Richter’s original home teams Smash Malice and Brutal Pageant meet in a final showdown for the first time since 2010, when the pink and red disgraced beauty queens of Pageant defeated leopard-clad Malice for a record-breaking audience of Wellington fans.

Brutal Pageant will be making their first appearance in a season final in four years, while Smash Malice will be looking to secure a championship title for the first time since 2011 – having lost hard-fought games to RCRD’s other home team Comic Slams in the 2012 and 2013 finals.

Several veteran skaters have swapped team strips this season while a whole new crop of rookies has joined the Richter ranks. Fans can check out the new line-ups at www.facebook.com/richtercity

With a more cosy and homegrown atmosphere than Richter’s former home TSB Arena, fans will have to get in quick for the limited number of seats available at new bouting venue Kilbirnie Rec Centre.

Doors 6pm, bout starts 7pm – tickets available at www.eventfinder.co.nz/2014/roller-derby-season-final-smash-malice-vs-brutal-pageant/wellington
