TXRD Lonestar Rollergirls

Hellcats vs. Cherrybombs

Roller Derby is an American traditional sport for entertainment more than competition. The goal of the roller derby members is to lap the other team before the end of the match. The all-female sport has grown so much since the 1920s, that it is considered part of the third wave of feminism.

The city of Austin has become a part of roller derby world in 2001 and under the Austin system of Texas Roller Derby Lonestar Rollergirls, are housed five teams; The Holy Rollers, The Cherry Bombs, The Rhinestone Cowgirls, The Hellcats, and The Putas de Fuego.

The derby teams are very much supported by the city of Austin. The Texas Roller Derby Lonestar Rollergirls are sponsored by companies all around the city  including, Austin’s Pizza, Coyote Ugly, Emo’s and Kerbey Lane Café.

Roller Derby events are held at the Palmer Events Center, admission will only run you about $15/person. The next big TXRD show is scheduled for May 14!
