Yeppoon’s first ever Women’s Flat Track Roller Derby Bout

FUN, fitness and friendship are the three f's these ladies live by when it comes to roller derby.

The Capricorn Coast women are more than just team-mates, forming a strong bond while skating and competing across the region.

This weekend will see Yeppoon Roller Derby staging Yeppoon's first ever Women's Flat Track Roller Derby Bout.

Secretary and Coach Simon Allen said the girls will be bouting at the Basketball Stadium in the Soccer grounds, on Saturday from 5pm.

"Yeppoon Roller Derby has been established for two years now and have played three bouts against other clubs, recording two wins," Simon said.

"There are skaters from Bundaberg, Gladstone, Mackay, Rockhampton and Yeppoon attending."

Simon said the Yeppoon club had skaters from aged from 18 to 50. "Our Yeppoon girls train two nights a week and are excited to be showcasing this sport," Simon said.

Local MP Brittany Lauga will be opening this event with a gold coin entry and seating for 200.
