Ahoy there, everything is going swimmingly with the Portsmouth Roller Wenches! We now have 10 Wenches who have passed their minimum skills, so watch out for us scrimmaging soon!!
Wenches The Duchess of Crutches & R.I.P McMurphy are competing in a bout in Birmingham this Saturday (2nd), both skating on Team Fast!! It is going to be streamed on http://rduk.tv/ so make sure you tune in on Saturday!!!
We had our 1st birthday celebrations this weekend, as the first ever Wenches practice was on June 20th 2010! So Wench partying on Saturday led to a few hangovers on Sunday but we soon sweated them out with an ace practice session, with an hour of rules delivered to us by the fabulous Scoot’er of Brighton Rockers, then some scrimmaging with NSO & Zebra crews assembled by Scoot’er and Joe from the Rockers. Massive thanks to them for coming to help out their South Coast Derby sisters (& brothers!)!!!
Happy Birthday Portsmouth Roller Wenches! xxx
Our new featured skater is Rudyard Cripping, Scurvy Dog turned Wench referee. He needs more people to join his Zebra Squad!!! So calling all potential referees – get in contact with the Wenches NOW!! Come and have fun skating with us, learning the rules and being part of an awesome team!!!
Guys, roller derby may be a predominantly female sport, but we need you as refs! and Girls, if you don’t fancy the full on contact of derby but still wanna get on skates and get involved, this is the perfect opportunity for you!! Refs can wear quad skates or blades and participate in all of our practices.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Wenches Halcyon Daze and The Duchess of Crutches competed against eachother today at The Lincolnshire Bombers Rock, Block & Two Smoking Jammers event!
They skated in the opening bout, Team Cops vs. Team Robbers, with the Robbers winning by a very close 15 points!! Well done to our grrrls who skated hard and made their fellow Wenches proud!!!
In other Wench news, we now have around 8 skaters who have passed their minimum skills, with hopefully more to follow!! We also continue to be proud of our Fresh Meat who have shown such great commitment!
