Double the Roller Derby action

Double the Roller Derby action

Wellington’s Richter City Roller Derby league will host a rare doubleheader vs Dead End Derby Christchurch Rollergirls on Saturday 5 September at Kilbirnie Rec Centre.

A curtain raiser will see Richter’s development team the Convicts take on DED’s development team the Living Dead Rollers in a matchup that’s sure to test the national system for ranking teams – the Convicts are currently ranked NZ 7th while the Living Dead come in at 14th in an NZ-based calculator.

Later in the evening the NZ #1 ranked Richter City All Stars will take on the #3 ranked Dead End Derby All Stars for the first time in Wellington since 2011. Roller derby players and fans from around the country will have an eye on this game, as both teams boast skaters from the 2014 New Zealand Roller Derby national squad, and both recently returned with wins in tournaments in Australia.

Now in its seventh year of public competition, Richter City is the premier derby league in New Zealand. The All Stars are one of just two NZ teams who belong to the international Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) – in June they returned from Canberra with a podium finish behind the Aus #4 and #5 ranked teams – and their debut in the international rankings.

Spectators will have to get in quick for the limited number of seats available.

Doors 4pm, first bout starts 5pm – tickets available at http://www.eventfinda.co.nz/2015/roller-derby-double-header-richter-city-vs-dead-end-derby/wellington

He’s an extroverted/big ego/high achieving/God fearing/country music lovin’/family man who is not at all averse to mansplaining to little ladies like RNZ’s Kathryn Ryan what “technical” words like “productivity” actually mean. But wait, there’s more. National is back! Mind you, that’s not the Bad National of recent experience, but the Good National of days gone by... More>>
