The hottest part of a flame is closest to the source. In this case, the greatest competition in roller derby is always at home – home season that is! Last year, spectators witnessed home bouts that ended with single points separating the teams or rolling into overtime. When you pit athletes who know one another so well against each other, you’re going to get some fight-to-the-finish finales!
Subtract veteran derby girls and add newly established skaters, and you never know what is going to happen!
This year’s three home bouts will take place one Saturday per month at the Alex & Ani Outdoor Rink in downtown Providence. On July 25, it will be Old Money Honeys versus the Sakonnet River Roller Rats. On Aug 29, you’ll see the Mob Squad battle against the Sakonnet River Roller Rats. Then on Sept 19, the Old Money Honeys will go skate-to-skate with the Mob Squad. After all is rolled and won, after the victories and the points have been tallied, we will conclude this year’s season with the Home Team Championship Double Header at Teamworks in Warwick on Oct 10! Tickets are available for the Providence bouts now at ProvidenceRollerDerby.com.
