An excellent night out - pure entertainment. It's always a blast watching these athletes pummel each other in the ring.

It doesn't get any better than this!! Reminds me of when I used to watch the New York team back in the 60's. Thank you for offering these great seats. Missy

As wild of a crowd I have ever seen turned out for a great game. …one of the most vocal crowds ever seen in recent memory. —Game Coverage Report by Robert Siese, April 28, 2007

Description

Roller Derby has its roots in the Transcontinental Roller Derby in 1935, which simulated a cross-country roller skating race between teams of skaters. Over time, this race developed into the modern contact sport of Roller Derby. The San Francisco Bay Bombers are probably the most recognized team of the original Roller Derby franchises. The team name has been around since 1954, and today’s San Francisco Bay Bombers are carrying on that legacy. They skate in the original Roller Derby style, fielding women and men skaters on each team alternating on the track. The playing field is a masonite banked track roughly the size of a basketball court, unlike many new leagues that skate on a flat surface.
