Last weekend, on February, 28th we went to Frankfurt to bout against the girls from Bembel Town Rollergirls and what a nerve-wracking game that turned out to be!! Two jams before the end of the game it seemed like Bembel Town was about to win, when Zandy Zunder saved the day and scored the final winning points – 136:144 for VRD. Thank you Bembel town Ladies for this thrilling game! Not much time to rest though, on the 14th of March another home bout is waiting for this, this time we’ll play against the lovely girls of Dresden. Check here or our facebook event for more info!

On february 7th, VRD started into the derby season with a bout against the girls of Prague City Roller Derby. For the first time we were able to officially annouce that we were sold out, even days before the bout and this thanks to our amazing crowd! This first bout of the year was played with seven of our newest skaters, some of them played in their first bout ever – supported by VRDs veterans. Things did not go exactly as we planned, we lost 160:190, but we were given the chance to learn something, so we also have to say a big thank you to our guests from PCRD! We are very positively looking into our bout season, with four bouts coming up just until june! Check out the pictures in the gallery (Photos taken by Nadine Poncioni)!
This is the first time we can officially annouce that we’re sold out! Please do not use the paypal option anymore to buy tickets – unless you want to donate some money which we would appreciate likewise. If you were not able to get your ticket in time, don’t worry, you’ll have your next chance on march, 14! For all the lucky ones who got a ticket, see you on saturday. We are excited!
