The fun-filled evening, bringing together women and men's roller derby, will take place July 13 at GoodSports in Wall.
The bout will offer more than your average sporting event and draws a diverse audience. Roller derby is experiencing a national resurgence. It is a full contact, aggressive, competitive sport conducted on four-wheeled skates. The roller derby that you will see is not faked.
