Introducing ....

Welcome to UK Roller Derby and welcome to the Round-Up Bout girls :)

With leagues springing up all over Great Britain, I'd personally love to see news of a league in Reading - my home town! (and before you ask, the reason I'm not starting it up, is because I live in Canada!)
Hugs and shoves,

Where? Sport Stuttgart, Stuttgart, Germany

The Auld Reekie Roller Girls Twisted Thistles, take a trip across the channel and through the perilous French countryside through to Germany to meet the fantastic Stuttgart Valley Roller Girlz on track for the first time ever!

Although both teams were present at Roll Britannia in London last summer, the way the drawings and results went meant that sadly they never got to meet on track. The horror!!

Come and support ARRG in their derby adventures on Saturday 19th June in Stuttgart, Germany. What better excuse do you need to have a weekend in Germany?! Just think of all that skating, German beer and brattwurst :) Mmmmmm, delicious protein!

Doors open at 7pm, bout starts at 7:30pm. Ticket information will follow as soon as we receive it. In the meantime, check out both teams websites!

See you in Europe!
