Carolina All-Stars vs. Atlanta All-Stars

Join us, this Saturday September 3, at Dorton Arena, when the Carolina Rollergirls take on our old rival Atlanta, in a double header! Carolina has a long history with Atlanta, we’ve supported each other for years and helped one another grow and advance as premier roller derby leagues. We look forward to every game we play against them.

The opening event will be a Carolina home team, the Tai Chi-tahs against the Atlanta B-team, the Rumble Bs. Make sure you get there early to see the Chi-tahs pounce on the girls from Hotlanta. Opener starts at 3pm.

For the main event, the Carolina All-Stars will take on the Dirty South Derby Girls aka the Atlanta All-Stars. The CRG All-Stars record is 14 – 1 this year and we’re looking to add another win before heading to the Eastern Regional Playoffs later this month.
