Derby Luv!

I heard from the ever excellent Speedin Hawking of the Death Track Dolls. Speedin handles PR and Marketing for the Toronto Roller Derby (ToRD) and she let me know about a couple of upcoming events and she finished her email with 'Derby Luv!'  What a great expression and so true for Toronto - the derby fans fill up the Hanger in Downsview Park and each game seems to get more crowded with more sold out games. It's easy to get addicted to the fast paced action, lingerie, colourful uniforms and watching 'Real Women. Real Hits. Real Heart.'
A couple of interesting roller derby tidbits. 1) Apparently roller derby is the fastest growing sport with over 1000 leagues worldwide. 2) The Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) has just accepted the all-female, skater owned and operated Toronto Roller Derby into their governing body association - way to go ladies!. 3) The last regular game finished with the Chicks Ahoy beating the Death Track Dolls. 4) The league now goes into the semi-final on Saturday, June 11 with the final Championship game, named 'Battle for the Boot', on Saturday, June 25, 2011. These games tend to sell out fast so get your tickets as soon as possible. 5) And don't forget The Clam Slam in support of Pride Toronto on June 30.

See more derby shots after the jump.
