The Canberra Roller Derby League has the exciting news that teams from around Australia are converging on Canberra for a Centenary bout!

As Canberra celebrates its centenary year, SKATE-TURION is about to hit the Nation’s Capital during the June long weekend. To celebrate the centenary Canberra Roller Derby League (CRDL), in conjunction with Scope Mount Stromlo, will be hosting a roller derby tournament at Tuggeranong Southern Cross Stadium. Billed as Canberra’s biggest battle in 100 years, top teams will be converging from Sydney, Adelaide, Perth and Brisbane, the competition will be fierce.

The tournament structure itself sets a precedent for roller derby in Canberra. The 2-day event will see 12 teams compete against each other across 3 divisions. Closed heats run on Saturday 8th will establish which teams will progress through to the finals on Sunday. Tickets for all finals on Sunday 9th will be available to the public.

Derby fans new and old can come to Southern Cross Stadium and see for themselves some of Australia’s best skaters take to the track.

Tickets through Oztix.

Part of the fun of derby spectating is dressing up. You want to be wearing lime green, purple, and black to support the Vice City Rollers. Think “Raiders jersey after a disco spewed on it” and you’ll fit in just fine.
