Less rent, more bouts! Vienna Roller Derby goes crowdfunding and starts a 42 days fundraising marathon! Our goal is to raise money for one-years rent for Saturday night training at our sports hall. With the money we would save for the rent, we would be able to organize more than one home bout each year, which means more Derby for us and for you. Find out more about what is in it for you at our Indiegogo campaign. Show us some love and we will give you back the finest live derby action, hilarious after parties and fun fun fun, that’s not a promise, that’s a fact! We are grateful for every kind of support, spreading the word is also a big help! Keep checking our Indigogo page for more updates!
On Saturday June 7th, VRD hosted its first home bout this year and what a day and night that was - no words could descirbe! At 16:30 the doors opened for the audience and VRD was instantly overwhelmed by so much Derby Love, 390 tickets were sold and nearly every seat at Hopsagasse was taken. Half an hour later the spectacle began, our own beloved Fearleaders fired up the audience with their stunning show just before our Rookies deBOUT. Rookies played against Rookies in teams black and white, this was their very first time in front of an audience and rarely have you seen so many proud and radiant faces!
Then it was time for the Pros, VRDs A-Team played against the Roller Derby Metz Club All Stars. In the first half lead change followed after lead change and scores kept being tied. During the second half RDMC really showed what they got and VRD kept fighting til the end but the game ended at 122:162 for RDMC. Nonetheless VRD had a great day with challenging competitors, the best audience ever and an afterparty that is hard to top! But rumours have it that VRD will be travelling to Metz next year. Find more pics here – we’ll keep updating them so stay tuned!
It’s time again – VRD is looking for new skaters! On the 25th VRD will have another Recruiting Day, your chance to try Roller Derby! You don’t need any experience or equipment, just drop us a line on firstname.lastname@example.org with your shoe size and approximate equipment size (wrist guards, knee pads etc.).
