Roller derby to thrill crowds
TWEED'S Valley Vixens will roll into Carrara Indoor Sports Stadium in two weeks for their maiden bout.
The 14-strong women's roller derby team, who train at Epic Skate Rink in Tweed Heads South, will take on the Brisbane City Rollers on Saturday, October 23, in a demo bout.
The rough and tough Tweed girls, who vary in age between 17 and 46, are looking forward to banging it out in the rink.
Mooball player Simone Rohan, known on her skates as Monie Bones, said they had waited a long time for this opportunity.
“We can't wait, it's very exciting. Roller derby is very empowering, athletic and unlike any other sport out there,” the 31-year-old said.
