Brought to you by Fort Wayne, Indiana’s own Fort Wayne Derby Girls, this spring event features more than 20 teams, including both all-female and all-male teams. In the roller derby world, sporting events are called “bouts.” During this three-day event, guests will have a chance to see a number of match ups at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum, located on the north side of the city.

Roller derby is an action-filled sport, featuring athletes on roller skates. They skate in the same direction on the rink with the goal of having one designated player score points by lapping members of the other team. It’s not for the faint of heart, but you will be guaranteed to have a great time!
