It’s a roller derby special this afternoon at the Meadowbank Sports Centre as the Auld Reekie Roller Girls host their Home Season Grand Final.
In this year’s Home Season, ARRG’s three home teams – the Cherry Bombers, Leithal Weapons and Skatefast Club – have battled it out in three fast and furious games, all of which culminate in today’s Home Season Grand Final featuring a double-header of matches.
The Skatefast Club had a decisive win over Leithal Weapons in the first game of the Home Season, before the Leithals rallied with a win against the Cherry Bombers in the second game. Following a rollicking game in early November in which Skatefast Club beat the Cherry Bombers, it’s all set for a dramatic finish to the season as the Leithal Weapons takes on the Skatefast Club, dukeing it out for supremacy. The grand final will be a double-header, with the third-placed home team taking on guest team the Roller Bones.
Doors open for the Home Season Grand Final at 2pm, so come along and view our cake, merchandise and craft stalls before the first game begins at 2.30pm.
ARRG has arranged a special license for a bar, and there will be half-time entertainment. There will also be separate seating areas for families and young children and a children’s craft corner to keep little ones amused.
Will it be the Leithal Weapons or the Skatefast Club who come out victorious? There’s only one way to find out – head down to Meadowbank for the first whistle!
