On June 17th at Havant Leisure Centre come and watch Portsmouth Roller Wenches A & B team go head to head with Oxford Roller Derby A & B in an epic double header! Portsmouth Roller Wenches are a not-for-profit roller derby team currently ranked 22nd in the UKRDA– an achievement of which Portsmouth should be very proud. With the latest UKRDA stats weighted only slightly in Portsmouth A teams favour, the upcoming bout will be an event not to be missed, as these two seasoned teams take to the track on June 17. You can book your tickets online HERE (tickets are £6 plus a booking fee) and check the Facebook event HERE too.
The last time that Portsmouth A team played Oxford Roller Derby was in 2011 when both roller derby teams were still in their infancy. Portsmouth’s Head of Training the Duchess of Crutches (Ali Ceppi Lees) remembers the game well, “It was an exciting game with the Portsmouth Roller Wenches taking the win, the final scores reflecting a solid Portsmouth result – PRW 112 to Oxford 76.”
Portsmouth Roller Wenches were formed in 2010 and were the first Hampshire league to take up this unique and powerful female sport, they now boast a league of over 40 members from across the South East. The Portsmouth Roller Wenches will also be celebrating their 7th birthday on this weekend so make sure you come along and support your local team at their next upcoming game.
