Ice, Ice, Derby!

This weekend Central City Rollergirls are excited to travel to the Tattoo Freeze convention in Telford, to take part in an exhibition tournament run by UKRDA – in conjunction with CCR.

The tournament sees 8 of the UK’s top teams take part in a knock-out style competition until one is crowned the winner. UKRDA is hosting the tournament as an experiment into how a UK ranking system could work.

CCR took part in a similar tournament at Tattoo Freeze 2011,  alongside Auld Reekie Roller Girls, London Rollergirls’ Brawl Saints and London Rockin’ Rollers.

This year they all return, with Birmingham Blitz Dames, Lincolnshire Bombers, Dolly Rocket Rollers and Glasgow Roller Girls joining to compete for the title.

It looks set to be an unmissable day for UK derby,  and features a long-awaited roller derby derby, with Midlands leagues CCR and Blitz Dames meeting each other on track for the first time.
