Geelong Roller Derby League’s season opening bout was held last Sunday 3rd April – and what a smash fest it was.
It was a bouting debut for a handful of skaters – Natalie Bashingskate, Carmen Attcha and Ellen B Rage for the Atom Bombs, and Mish B Haven and Rhythm N Bruise taking the track for the first time for the Psychotics.
Despite the new comers, this was an epic battle of speed and strength from the get go.
They leapt to an early lead, however despite the determination of the Atom Bombs troupes – lead by team captain, Vyvian Oblivion, the relentless hard hits from the likes of Nitro Nutter for the Psychotics, the Atom Bombs were defeated 95, Psychotics 106.
The revenge rematch and Round 2 entitled Heads May Roll will be held on Sunday May 15th at Leisuretime, Bell Post Hill.
The battle for victory continues. BE THERE!
Tickets On Sale for Heads May Roll very soon, Watch this space!

GRDL skaters united with those of other Victorian leagues as one collective on Sunday, to participate in the 16th Annual G@y and L#sbian Pride March.
Some marched, but most rolled under the banner of The Vagine Regime – an international community of queer derby girls and their allies, who strive to build a united front in the recognition of queer and feminist activism.
Co-ordinated by Scarlett Savage for the second year running now, GRDL were well represented by Ruby E Raze, Rai Scar, Flash Pantz and GRDL President, Miss Afliktion, executing a mighty fine performance as banner bearer.
Whist C-curves and slaloms saw all skaters safely down the hill, there was no escaping the deafening cheers and outstretched arms of the crowd vying for a high five from a derby girl or two – not too dissimilar to the end of a bout. There is nothing quite like a pumped up parade to brighten one’s day!
