In a historic match-up, the Naptown Warning Belles will play the Circle City Socialites for the first time publicly on Saturday, April 19, 2014, at the Marsh Blue Ribbon Pavilion at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, 1202 East 38th Street, Indianapolis, Indiana.

The Circle City Derby Girls formed in 2008 by former members of the Naptown Roller Girls.

The second bout of the night pits the #11-ranked Tornado Sirens in an international match-up against the Tri-City Roller Girls from Kitchener, Ontario.

“Star Wars” will also come alive this night (a Naptown Roller Girls tradition). The evening will feature appearances from two of Indianapolis’ “Star Wars” groups, the 501st and the Rebel Legion.  You’ll see Stormtroopers, princesses, and droids (to name a few)! They will also be offering the popular “Blast a Trooper” game to raise money for Habitat for Humanity.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m., with the Warning Belles and Socialites starting at 6:00 p.m.

Tickets are available online via BrownPaperTickets.com and at local vendors around the city.  Partial proceeds will go to benefit Habitat for Humanity.

It will be a historic battle for the city and state on Dec. 28, 2013, as the Naptown Roller Girls kick off their eighth home season at the Marsh Blue Ribbon Pavilion at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, 1202 East 38th Street, Indianapolis, Indiana.

The roller derby double-header kicks off with the Naptown Warning Belles taking on the South Bend Roller Girls at 6 p.m.  This will be the first time these two teams have met.  The second bout will pit two hometown teams against each other: the Tornado Sirens will battle the Race City Rebels, Indianapolis’ premiere men’s derby team.

The Tornado Sirens are currently ranked #12 in the world by the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA).  The Rebels are ranked #9 in the world by the Men’s Roller Derby Association (MRDA).

“While the two teams have never played each other publicly, they have scrimmaged against each other at practice,” said Naptown Roller Girls spokesperson Peyton Slamming.  “Men’s derby is growing in popularity all the time and Race City provides a strong opponent for us to kick off the season!”

Doors open at 5:30 p.m., with the first bout starting at 6:00 p.m.  The second bout will start at approximately 7:30 p.m.

The night will also usher in a new era for NRG with many new faces on both the Warning Belles and Tornado Sirens. Partial proceeds from the bout will go to the National Kidney Foundation.  Naptown is proud to support NKF, including having two kidney donors in our ranks.
