Description

The 2010 Goldstar “hot seller” event, the Bombers Professional Roller Derby is back with live co-ed banked track Roller Derby action for 2011 at San Francisco’s historic Kezar Pavilion featuring the 2010 world champion San Francisco Bay Bombers, who take on the rugged Brooklyn Red Devils. This is an “In San Francisco only” experience. The seats are excellent and priced perfectly for a family-friendly sporting event that is professionally sanctioned by the American Roller Skating Derby. These Roller Derby athletes deliver a suspenseful match and thrill audiences with team-scoring assists. The Bombers are recognized as the finest in all of today’s modern roller derby scene. Come early for warm ups and will call.

Roller derby’s roots started with the 1935 Transcontinental Roller Derby, a simulated cross-country roller skating race between teams of skaters. Over time, this race developed into the modern contact sport of roller derby we see today. The San Francisco Bay Bombers are the most recognized roller derby team on earth and current world champions. The Bombers were originally founded in 1954, and today’s San Francisco Bay Bombers are carrying the weight of a rich dynasty. They skate in the original roller derby style, fielding athletic female and male skaters on each team, alternating squads of play until the final seconds of the bout determine who wins. The Bombers compete on a large masonite banked track roughly the size of a basketball court, unlike amateur leagues that skate on a flat roller rink surface.
