Skating With A Passion in Irving, TX

Friday, September 22, 2017 2:00 PM by Carol Stoddard

What do speed, strategy and raw female athleticism have in common? Women's Roller Derby of course! But the world of flat track derby is not like your mother's derby from years ago.  Oh yes, there's the fast-paced action, and some body checks, and some healthy competition, with yelling, cheering and penalty boxes, but the hits, spills and competition are 100% real. Scoring points involves a "Jammer" making it through a pack of "Blockers" from the opposing team. (Think football players on skates) Once that's done, she scores points every time she passes the opposing team's Blockers.  At the same time, her Blockers try to help their own Jammer get through. And I'll let you in on another secret, it's totally addicting to watch.  Ya just gotta see it!  And you can . . . this weekend . . . September 22 - 24.  Head on down to the Irving Convention Center and watch these ladies skate their way to the top bracket. 

It's no secret, there are tons of things to do here in Irving, Texas this weekend. Below are some of our favorites. And for more area events, just hop on over to our website at www.irvingtexas.com.
