Roller Derby Across the Country (and in Puerto Rico) This Weekend!

Everyone out there probably¬† knows how much we love Roller Derby and the incredible community surrounding it. Over the last decade we’ve watched this sport grow from scrappy DIY beginnings to filling arenas across the country and we can’t be more proud to be such an integral part of the derby family. As part of this community we feel it’s our duty to get the word out about derby events and to encourage all our customers to support this incredible sport and all those involved in it. So, here’s my list of derby events happening in the next couple weeks. There’s even the first Roller Derby bout in Puerto Rico! Get out there and support your local derby teams! Tell ’em BPT sent you.

Hot August Fights – Rollerpalooza and This Weekend’s Derby Events Nationwide!

As everyone knows, we love roller derby here at Brown Paper Tickets and we got a ton of derby events happening all over the country this weekend.

One of special interest to us is Rollerpalooza starting on Friday, August 19 in Coos Bay, Oregon. Our Derby Doer Bob Noxious is going to be in the house to help out. Bob travels all over the country helping out derby leagues with everything from announcing to coaching to helping them set up ticketing. If you’re a derby league that needs a hand, get in touch with Bob and he can help you out.

Rollerpalooza is a weekend long derby festival that features clinics, scrimmages and tournaments from up and coming Northwest derby teams.

Bob says, “It’s really grass roots derby, which is what I like about it. OK, ALL derby is grass roots, but this is derby for the love of the game and our culture. Not a tournament aimed at improving your ranking for the national playoffs , so the vibe will be very different, very fun.”
