The fast-paced, whirlwind of roller derby is back for another heart-wrenching season. Western Australia Roller Derby is heading into their eighth year and the stakes for the 2017 season are high. With a hat-trick on the cards, the girls are stronger, faster and more resilient than ever.

The two teams, Sonic Doom and Atomic Sirens, are going head to head on Saturday 11th March. After a contested and competitive 2016 season, Sonic Doom is raring to secure their third Grand Final win. The girls have trained long and hard for this moment, and with both teams looking to nab the first of the five-game season, tension is high.

After the doors open at 7 pm, you'll find yourself quickly emerged into the crazy, mind blowing and hectic world of derby. You'll see the women of this progressive sport race around the track collecting and protecting points. With a focus on simultaneous defence and offence, the sport can sometimes be confusing but you'll soon realise roller derby is for the strong willed with both tactics and strength playing important roles in the game.

Not sure of the rules? This video will show you everything you need to know. So, sit back and enjoy the spectacle of flying skates and big hits all in the name of healthy competition. With a bar, food stalls and artisan markets, you'll be thoroughly satisfied and entertained.

Grab your game tickets here or avoid missing any of the action by grabbing a season pass! For more information, head to the Facebook event. Don't miss the start to an unforgettable season. Grab your tickets early as this season opener is sure to sell out fast. Also, don't forget to bring cash as there are no ATM facilities at the venue. But if it's unavoidable, there is a cash machine next door at IGA but to avoid the cue, head there early!
