Newcastle Roller Girls are currently taking a well earned summer break, but they will be back with a bang in September to bring you two home bouts in as many weeks!

PART ONE – SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 21ST
The Canny Belters take on the Seaside Siren Roller Girls, followed by an intraleague cherry popper game between NRG Team Black and NRG Team White – made up of our B team skaters and rising stars!

PART TWO – SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 29TH
The Canny Belters are finally having a rematch against Manchester Roller Derby’s Checker Broads who pipped the Geordie girls to the post when the teams last played in Walker in July 2012. Then Tyne & Fear who finished at the Men’s European Roller Derby Championships 2013 this summer in third place will be taking on the second place team, none other than London’s Southern Discomfort!
