Ever felt the need to pound into women while skating and wearing killer outfits? Well, this is what the Memphis Roller Derby (MRD) league does weekly throughout their season. The Memphis Roller Derby league is composed of three home teams: Women of Mass Destruction, Angels of Death, and the PrissKilla Prezleys. All-stars from those teams form the interleague travel team, the Memphis Hustlin’ Rollers, which competes against other roller derby leagues. They are of the only all-female, flat track derby teams in the region.
You may not know that MRD is a non-profit organization, and they have approximately 60 skaters and 20 volunteers total. This means in between skating, they also volunteer with organizations such as Memphis Area Sexual Assault Resource Center, St. Jude, Salvation Army, Church Health Center, and more.
We proudly support these strong women in their endeavors to stay healthy and help the community. Roller Derby bouts are very fun, and we highly suggest you check the next one out on March 9th. Keep your ears peeled, and you just may win a Huey’s door prize while there.
MRD has 6 home bouts per year, and then will be heading to the Intra-League Championship in August.
