What a HOOT! We had a great time. The demographics were all over the place - very San Francisco! You had the grandparents, kids, couples on dates, and the internet group! WILD. Eat before you go as the food is not great but they do sell hot dogs ($4), popcorn ($3) and soda/water ($2)that will do in a pinch. You have bench/seat number but get there at least 30 mins before to stake your claim. Street parking is difficult but there is parking lot parking for $8 right outside Kezar. We'll go again and bring friends.

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.
