Sports Saturday: Charm City Roller Girls

October 23rd, 2010 by WLOY Staff

What’s a real rough, tough, and unique sport to check out in Baltimore? None other than the Charm City Roller Girls. Roller Derby comes off as a vicious sport, and it certainly takes a powerful woman to skate for the team, but the Charm City Roller Girls are none other than a real representation of women from all over the Baltimore/DC area.

Inspired by other leagues in major cities, the Charm City Roller Girls formed in 2005 and now have an organization of their own with over 80 members, all donning the witty names on the backs of their uniforms you can’t help but admire. Roller Derby has gotten more attention recently, from being the setting for individual episodes of TV shows like Psych to being the basis of major films like Whip It, so why don’t you come out and see first-hand what a bout is really like?

The season is coming to an end, but the girls are taking to the track one last time – tonight! It’s a double header so it’s sure to provide a genuine look at the sport and the city the girls represent. Tonight is sure to be a Saturday night like no other.

The Double Header will take place at:
Du Burns Arena
1301 S. Ellwood Ave.
Baltimore, MD 21224

Tickets range from $5 to $25.
Doors are at 5:30 PM
