NBRG to Host First Game Of Roller Derby on the Northern Beaches

The Northern Beaches Roller Girls (NBRG) are very excited to be hosting their first game of Roller Derby on

the Northern Beaches. This historic event follows as part of a newly formed sister-league partnership with

Adelaide League, Murder City Roller Girls, who the Sirens played at The Great Southern Slam in June.

The Homicidolls, Murder City’s travel team will be travelling all the way from Adelaide, along with members of

their Officials crew, to participate in a friendly game on 26th August with The Northern Beaches Roller Girls’

travel team, the Sirens, kicking off this newly formed partnership. This will be the first game of Roller Derby

to be hosted on the Northern Beaches as well as the first game to be hosted at their home venue, the

Northern Beaches PCYC.

Sirens Captain and League Vice President, Sonia Collingwood said “We are thrilled to be partnering with

Murder City as it will provide the Sirens additional travel and bouting opportunities, support a learning

environment within our leagues, as well as help promote roller derby on the Northern Beaches and beyond.”

The game will be held on Sunday 26th August at the Northern Beaches PCYC and consist of one friendly

scrim between the Sirens and Homicidolls and one black and white ‘mini scrim’ with mixed teams made up of

Sirens, Homicidolls as well as ‘Freshies’ from each league (skaters who are newer to the sport in order to

gain experience). Doors open at 9:45am with first whistle at 10:00am. The event will be open to friends and

family as well as those in the Northern Beaches community who are interested in seeing what Roller Derby is

about. Although a free event, a gold coin donation will be asked to help cover costs. Event details can be

found on the Northern Beaches Roller Girls Facebook Page.

It’s been a long road for the Northern Beaches Roller Girls who, after looking for a home training ground for

years finally moved to the newly built Northern Beaches PCYC in November 2017.

“We are grateful to have a space like the Northern Beaches PCYC which not only makes Roller Derby more

accessible to the community but also means that we can look forward to hosting many more games and

even larger scale roller derby events right here on the Northern Beaches.” said Charlie Pugh, NBRG League

President.
