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
