It’s one week until the Central City Rollergirls host their first international bout on Sunday 13th November.
Fresh from playing their first overseas bout in Stuttgart, CCR’s ‘Belles of Cenntrinians’ will take on Sioux Falls Roller Dollz, travelling all the way from South Dakota USA, to bout at Cocks Moor Woods Leisure Centre in Kings Heath. Having been accepted into the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association’s apprentice league programme in July 2011, this will be the league’s first WFTDA sanctioned game.
Centrinnian’s Blocker Verry Cherry said, “CCR have gone from strength to strength, and along with other leagues in the UK have been very proactive in pushing UK roller derby to the next level.
“We have travelled all over the country to play different teams, but to host and play against a team from the USA really is a big privilege for us and a challenge we can’t wait to sink our teeth into!”
With an impressive series of wins throughout 2011, and the bout coinciding with CCR’s 4th birthday, the league definitely has a lot to celebrate.
You can still buy reduced early bird tickets here and join both leagues at the after party to watch WFTDA Championship Tournament!
