Pirate City Rollers home season heats up this winter

The weather outside is frightful, but the Derby is so delightful!

Saturday July 18th kicks off our back-to-back home games at Auckland’s YMCA Pitt Street.

As this is the first of three games coming up in quick succession, if you buy tickets to all three events online via Under the Radar using the same name, you will go in the draw to win great prizes!

Our first of three starts with Broadside Brawlers against Mt Militia from Tauranga for the first time on home ground. With half time entertainment supplied by our sponsor The Rock’N’Roll Circus and our after party at our sponsor bar Thirsty Dog, this is an evening not to be missed!

Check out all the details here.


Broadside Brawlers head north!

While our All Scars are in Florida competing in Beach Brawl, our Broadside Brawlers are training hard for their domestic travel games!

This Saturday, Pirate City Rollers’ Broadside Brawlers head to Whangarei to face Northland Nightmare’s Hells Wives in their second travel game of the season.

If you’re in the neighbourhood or would like to join us for a road trip, come and see us at Kensington Stadium, Whangarei! Full details here

Say hello to the formidable Missbhaven, who’s proven herself a strong and determined opponent on the track!

In her own words, here are her thoughts on her roller derby experience with PCR so far!

“Let me just preface this with… I hate doing these things, more hated than the dentist or cervical smears. That’s right, I equate doing these things to the equivalent of having my vajay-jay scraped with a popsicle stick.

missb1. What inspired your derby name and number?
My name? Ask my mom. Or my sister. Or my boyfriend… As for my number, let’s just say, “If you hide your ignorance, no one will hit you and you’ll never learn” – Ray Bradbury

2. What motivated you to join derby?
I was looking for something physical where I could be challenged, and the underground bear wrestling scene just wasn’t doing it for me (people joke that my Game of Thrones character is Brienne of Tarth). When I heard about a sport where you could legitimately crush people, both figuratively and literally, I had to give it a go.

3. What has been your greatest achievement in derby so far?
Making the All Scars squad and representing PCR in the Great Southern Slam last June. It was so great to skate against some top class teams. That, or managing to stay on my feet with a hangover and not throw up.

4. What is your favourite part about having the opportunity to play in a league with your sister Schroding-her?
I’m so glad that she has the chance to repay me for all the horrible things I did to her when we were kids.

5. What is your secret talent? (What would people be surprised to hear about you outside of derby)

This one time, at pagan camp…”
