FOR the first time ever the Australian Men’s Roller Derby National Championships will be held in Lesmurdie.

Over November 24-25 at Ray Owen Sports Centre, 96 Gladys Road in Lesmurdie, the best in the business will go at it hammer and tongs.

This year’s championship will involve seven teams representing Perth, Sydney, Victoria, Tasmania, Brisbane, Canberra and Newcastle.

Last year’s winners Tasmania’s ‘Bass Strait Brawlers’ will be focusing hard on keeping the trophy away from second- and third-placed Brisbane rollers ‘Scartel” and Victoria’s ‘Vanguard’.

Perth Men’s Derby team will be aiming to show the eastern raiders just how tough our own boys are.

Twelve games will be played from 9am on Saturday November 24 and there will be numerous merchandise stalls, a food kiosk and sports therapists on hand to address any athletic issues.

There will also be a tournament after party on Sunday November 25 at the Kalamunda Hotel from 6pm.

Tickets for the derby can be purchased from StickyTickets.com.au.
