Derby City Roller Girls All-Stars July 12th

Go to Champs Rollerdrome to cheer on the home team on July 12. The Derby City Roller Girls All-Stars will take on the Fox City Foxz in a real roller derby. This all-ages event is a can’t-miss, especially if you’ve never seen a live roller derby before.

Rolling at Champs

The doors open at 7 pm on July 12, though the game doesn’t start until 8. All tickets are general admission, so come early to get a good seat. The game is expected to end around 10 pm. Tickets are $9 for adults ages 13 and up. Children aged 7 to 12 are $5, and kids under 6 get to watch for free.

Roller derbies are action-packed. The athletic and competitive nature of the event is appealing to boys, and roller derbies are empowering for girls. If your family likes sporting events, the roller derby is a great choice.

You’ll find Champs Rollerdome at 9851 LaGrange Road, in Louisville’s East End. This is a large community of neighborhoods and homes, not to mention plenty of amusements.

The East Side of Town

Near LaGrange Road and Hurstbourne Parkway, Champ's is near Keeneland, Briarwood, Hickory Hill, Rolling Hills and several Louisville communities known for large, sprawling homes. E.P. “Tom” Sawyer State Park is just blocks away. Many neighborhoods and schools give this area of the city a quiet, suburban feel. But if you're looking for shopping, eating and other stuff to do, Westport Road is just a short distance away. This is where you'll find a large concentration of commercial businesses, and plenty of stuff to keep yourself occupied.

So if you’re in the neighborhood this July, stop by the rollerdrome to see the Derby City Roller Girls in action. Louisville has a proud tradition when it comes to sports, and that includes the ones that are conducted on roller skates.
