Girls ready to roll into town as fast-growing sport returns
GRIMSBY Leisure Centre will stage its second flat track roller derby on Sunday, June 24.
Imposters Roller Girls, who are based in Derby but train in Lincolnshire, will return to the north of the county to take on Newcastle Roller Girls.
Roller derby is one of the fastest growing sports in the United Kingdom.
It is a contact sport played by two teams of five members, roller skating in the same direction around a track. Game play consists of a series of short match-ups in which both teams designate a scoring player (the 'jammer'), who scores points by lapping members of the opposing team. The teams attempt to assist their own jammer while hindering the opposing jammer.
