Rollin’ Into 2012! January’s Featured Derby Events

Roller Derby had a great year in 2011. The derby community had its first international competition at the Derby World Cup last month and the sport continues to grow and expand. You see more men’s leagues and banked track derby than you did this time last year and derby leagues are popping up in every corner of the country and now, the world. No doubt, we’ll see more great things for derby in 2012 and Brown Paper Tickets hopes to be there every step of the way. Derby has helped us grow into the international company that we are today and we’re proud to be the preferred ticketing service for the derby community as it grows into an international sport.

Today, I’m highlighting derby events that are happening in the month of January so you all can get out there and support your local derby league and get 2012 rollin’ right. We got season openers, derby workshops, derby camps, derby for charity, inaugural bouts and more. Check it out: Read the rest of this entry »

Supplement the Turkey Coma with a Side of Derby

The holidays are almost upon us and what better way to celebrate the holidays than taking the family to see your local roller derby league? We got tons of holiday themed derby events, some fundraisers, some training events and of course, lots of bouts. Derby is always a fun and unique way to spend time with the family and your local derby teams could use your support for the upcoming holiday season.

Also starting on Thursday, December 1 in Toronto, Ontario is Blood & Thunder’s Roller Derby World Cup. This is the first Roller Derby World Cup and features teams from USA, Canada, England, Ireland, Scotland, Germany, Finland, Sweden, France, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil and Argentina. Proof positive that the derby revival has become a worldwide obsession. Our Alternative Sports Doer Bob Noxious will be in the house helping out along with resident roller-girl Michelle Sunnyday (aka Sunny With A Chance of Pain of the Tilted Thunder Railbirds). This is going to be a great event where international derby teams can not only compete with each other but also network and learn from fellow derby enthusiasts. If you love derby, get your tickets here, head out to Toronto and be a part of what promises to be the derby event of the year. Read the rest of this entry »
