Eves of Destruction roller derby returns after two-year hiatus with double-header event


Victoria’s favourite contact roller skating derby league is back and ready to kick off a brand new season!

After a two-year hiatus, Eves of Destruction returns with a double-header event at Archie Browning Sports Centre next weekend.

The Victoria roller derby league, which is a member of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association, was formed in 2006. 

Since then it has grown to include over 70 players, officials, and volunteers.

On May 28th, the action returns with a ‘Goths vs Plastics’ opening game, featuring skaters from each of Eves of Destruction’s house teams, followed by a mash-up Eves Showcase.

The all-ages event will also offer a beverage garden featuring a variety of local vendors including Spinnakers beer and Straight & Narrow mixed drinks. 

For the hungry spectators, Saltchuck Pies will also be in attendance to make sure you’re well fed. 

Doors open at 5 p.m., with the games starting at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased online, in advance, for $10 or at the door for $15.
