Fan Appreciation Party!

Since our Season Opener has been postponed, we are throwing a Fan Appreciation Party at 6:00 pm Saturday at Swig, 15135 North Freeway, in the strip mall in front of our new venue. You are welcome to come hang out with HRD skaters, and the first 100 fans get a free limited edition Houston Roller Derby stadium cup!

Season Opener Bout Postponed Until April 16th

Sincerest apologies to all our fans and supporters! Here is the official statement:

Due to circumstances beyond our control with our new venue, we will not be holding the March 19, 2011 bout as planned. The venue construction was not completed on time. We are rescheduling our season dates to include an additional bout on October 15, 2011.

Our revised season schedule is as follows:

April 16: Brawlers v. Red Stick; Sirens v. Bosse$
May 21: Bosse$ v. Southside; Brawlers v. Sirens
June 18: Sirens v. Hell Marys; Bosse$ v. Brawlers

September 17: Sirens v. Spindletop; Bosse$ v. Brawlers
October 15: 3rd place bout; 1st place v. 2nd place

All ticket purchases to the March 19, 2011 Bout will be honored at the April 16th, 2011 bout. Hold on to your online order confirmation or physical ticket and present it at the will call desk at the bout in April.

If you are absolutely certain that you will not be able to attend the April 16th, 2011 we will issue you a refund. Please contact Heather Jackson (aka Veronika Venom) at for details.

We are extremely disappointed that this has happened, as we are sure you are. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused for you, and hope to see you at the April 16th, 2011 bout!

Sincerest Apologies,

Heather Jackson (aka Veronika Venom)
