The Bay City Rollers are Hawke's Bays original premier competitive Roller Derby league, comprising team members from both Napier and Hastings.
Formed in late 2009, what began with a handful of dedicated skaters teaching themselves the basics of roller derby via the internet now boasts 60 members. Enjoying this huge influx of new members as the popularity of roller derby grows internationally and locally the Bay City Rollers have expanded into two competitive bouting teams; The Iron Maidens, the Hawkes Bay representative travel team and the Twisted Sisters, the development team. In 2015 we have also added a junior Roller Derby squad - the Guns & Roses who are well on their way to becoming bouting skaters in 2016 - this league is going from strength to strength!
Don't be fooled by the hot pink nail polish and lipstick, these girls are a force to be reckoned with on the track. There's a real sense of sisterhood within this tight-knit yet diverse group of women and with their team of coaches at the helm and training 'em hard - these ladies are determined to bring it in 2016.
Proud to represent Hawke's Bay & Proud to be skater owned and operated.
