One of the best sporting events in Houston, in my opinion, is the Houston Roller Derby at Verizon Theater. I have been at least three times, and all I have to say you must go if you haven’t been. If you think it’s all fake and everything is rehearsed, think again. These ladies are tough!!! And some of them are real mothers! (No joke intended.)
I have enjoyed every game. They really treat the fans like they are the stars. I’m building quite a collection of photos with a lot of the team members. I still haven’t taken photos of everyone yet. Luckily, all of the team members are very accessible before and after the matches to talk, sign autographs, take photos and hang with audience members.
Hope to see you at one of the bouts. I know I will be attending as many bouts as possible.
Their next match isn’t until the third Sunday in August at the Verizon Theater downtown but many Houston Roller Derby members will be at the 35th Annual Tomball Night
Celebration in Tomball!
