Comox Valley team will play Belles of the Brawl on June 7 at Sports Centre

The Brick House Betties will host a night of roller derby and burlesque on Saturday, June 7 at the Comox Valley Sports Centre (Arena 1). Doors open at 5 p.m. for the 19+ doubleheader event.

Game 1 starts at 6 p.m. with The Loganettes, a pick-up team of skaters from Victoria’s Eves of Destruction League, playing against Nanaimo’s Brass Knuckle Derby Dames. The Betties will take to the track in Game 2 at 8 p.m.

The Brass Knuckle Derby Dames were in Courtenay to play against the Brick House Betties last month in an exciting game. On May 10, local roller derby fans were treated to a nail-biter, resulting in a 220-217 win for the Dames.

“I am incredibly proud of the game we played against the Brass Knuckle Derby Dames,” said Brick House Betties team co-captain, Ruby Whipper. “There were so many lead changes, it was anyone’s game.”

In the headline game of the upcoming June 7 event, the Brick House Betties will challenge Victoria’s Belles of the Brawl to a rematch. The Belles came up-Island last June and beat the Betties 209-169. At that time, the Betties had to borrow a few skaters from the Rink Minx, another local Comox Valley derby team, to complete their roster, but the team is proud to field a full Betties roster a year later and to focus on teamwork.

Admission to the June 7 event is 19+ only, so book a babysitter for the night. As well as action-packed roller derby, the Betties are pleased to present a special performance by Sweet Tease Burlesque at a “Mo’ Funk after-party” when the games are done. There will also be 50/50 draws, a raffle, merchandise tables, a concession, and refreshments.

Check out the fast-paced, athletic sport of roller derby and see the Betties dish out the hits ’70s style! Want to get a good view of the game? Bring your own chair (BYOC) for trackside seating. Don’t miss the Brick House Betties’ last home game of this season.

 

The team travelled to Whistler to play the Black Diamond Betties on May 31, and will travel to Victoria to compete against the Margarita Villains on June 28.

Tickets to the Brick House Betties June 7 doubleheader will be available at the door only ($10 cash), starting at 5 p.m. Please bring ID. For more info, join the Betties on Facebook or visit www.brickhousebetties.com.
