Not only did the West Kentucky Rockin' Rollers take home a hard earned WIN against the Clarksvillians for their final home bout of the season, they also raised money and donations for Martha's Vineyard. A big thank you to all that donated in the weeks leading up to and during the bout. It wouldn't have been possible without caring people like you who take action to make our community better!

A local roller derby team is helping to fight hunger in Western Kentucky.
For the past few weeks, the West Kentucky Rockin' Rollers has been collecting food and raising money for Martha's Vineyard.
On Saturday, August 16th, the group presented the fruits of their labor to the non-profit.
Martha's got a check for $1,000 and several hundred pounds of canned goods.
See our upcoming bout schedule for 2016 above. Also, if you travel to nearby bouts and mixers to watch other teams play, you're likely to catch some of our talented skaters on the track. The occasional opportunity to join forces with skaters from other teams is a fun, great way to grow as a skater, and also........one can never have "too much" roller derby in their life! We appreciate the the wonderful support everyone has given WKRR over the past few years and look forward to seeing everyone this season. If your team is interested in scheduling a bout with the West Kentucky Rockin' Rollers, please contact Barba Fett for information. *All HOME games will take place at Kingsway Skateland in Paducah, KY*
