MK Take On Hertfordshire On The Roller Derby Track
|Author: Sarita||Published: 13th August 2012 01:13|
Roller Derby is one of the latest and most addictive sports to come to Milton Keynes. Formed two years ago, Milton Keynes Roller Derby and their team, the Concrete Cows, have grown into a force to be reckoned with. They have pitted their best players against other local teams in this year's 'End Of The World Series' and have so far remained unbeaten. If you haven't heard of MKRD or roller derby now is your chance to learn about this fun sport and support your hard-working local team at the same time.
Each bout involves two teams of five people; one jammer and four blockers. The jammers must lap the blockers of the opposing team, scoring points for every player they pass.

On Saturday 18th of August MKRD bout against Hell's Belles followed by Oxford Roller Derby versus Bedfordshire RollerGirls. Bedfordshire are hosting this event at Bedford's Bunyan Sports Centre starting at 12 noon. You can join in the fun by buying tickets online or on the door. As always this is a family-friendly event with team merchandise and the the odd sneaky cupcake for sale too. Be prepared for cheering, music and very dedicated fans.
