The Penticton Pistoleras are set to battle the Revelstoke Derailers in Women’s Flat Track Roller Derby action at McLaren Arena on May 12th.

The Pistoleras are comprised of thirteen women from across the South Okanagan, competing together in their first ever bout as the Penticton Pistoleras. Their competition is the Revelstoke Derailers, a tough group of gals with some solid hitters and strong skaters. Both teams look to be quite evenly matched and it will prove to be an exciting, physical match-up.

Roller Derby has been gaining momentum worldwide and is the fastest growing women’s sport. There are nearly twenty leagues in British Columbia alone. The South Okanagan league was formed in November of 2010 and has been training hard three times a week in preparation for the 2012 season. Cherry Cherry Bang Bang is the first of four home bouts in the South Okanagan this season where fans can come support local roller derby. The Pistoleras are ready to hit the track hard and fast with tons of speed, agility, and of course some serious booty blocks and hard hitting action.

There will be vendors and merch available, DJ, half-time show, and after party. Tickets are available online at brownpapertickets.com, The Bike Barn, Freeride Boardshop, Pentagon Boardshop or from any Pistolera derby girl.
