Naptown Roller Girls Present “Whip This” at 4th Season Opener

On Saturday evening, November 7, 2009, the Pepsi Coliseum at the Indiana State Fairgrounds is the place to be for sizzling action when the Naptown Roller Girls present “Whip This,” a special double-header roller derby event. Rolling against the Bleeding Heartland Roller Girls team called “Code Blue Assassins” from nearby Bloomington, Indiana, Indy‘s own Naptown Roller Girls team “Warning Belles” kick off the first bout of the fourth season at 5:30 pm. The second match in the double-header starts at 7:30 pm and pits the Naptown Roller Girls “Tornado Sirens” against the Bleeding Heartland’s “Flatliners.”

Naptown Roller Girls Indianapolis events are family friendly, but you might want to bring some earplugs; the bouts are every bit as loud as you might think. If you’re not a fan, just go to a bout and see why this is one of the most breakneck of Indianapolis sports. You’ll be a fan way before it’s over. The girls already have a big fan club and you can become a cardholding member with no expiration by printing out a card of your own from their Pep Rally Member Card webpage. If you’d like to make it official, register your email with them online from the Naptown Roller Girls fanclub’s website. But be advised that the motto is, “Once a Naptown Roller Girls fan, ALWAYS a Naptown Roller Girls fan… Or else.
