You’ll be able to watch a roller derby in Prescott tomorrow night.
The Ottawa Valley Roller Derby (OVRD) will be playing their first game of the season against a team out of Antwerp Belgium. It will be happening at the Leo Boivin Community Centre with doors opening at seven in the evening. The game begins at 7:30.
OVRD athlete Jane Rudolph says the sport is kind of like a combination of speed skating and rugby and hopes people will come out to watch. She says this is the first time they will be playing in Prescott.
“We’re kind of just looking to see if there’s an interest in watching it and if there is, we’ll probably do kind of a bigger scale bout in the future.”
It is a pay what you can to see the event tomorrow and all proceeds will be going to travel expenses for the Ottawa team.
