Ever been to a roller derby? There’s a big one coming up this weekend in Lynnwood.
The Jet City Rollergirls all-star team, the Bombers, will take on the Tucson Saddletramps this Saturday in a battle with regional significance. .
The number 12 ranked Bombers are hoping to upset number 8 Tucson and improve their chances of advancing to the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association Western Regionals for the first time.
The June 26 double-header starts at 5 p.m. at Edmonds Community College’s Seaview gym. It also features the Bellingham Betties versus the Silicon Valley Dot.Kamikazes. This event is fun for all ages and tickets are available now. Seating is limited and games regularly sell out. Tickets and more information can be found at www.jetcityrollergirls.com.
(In case you didn’t know, roller derby is a full-contact sport in which two teams roller skate around an oval track while simultaneously playing offense and defense.)
