Celebrating their ninth season of bone-jarring hits, the lady-led squads of the skater-run, nonprofit Tucson Roller Derby thrill crowds with supersonic skating, cringe-worthy spills, and multiplayer pileups. During each event, two 60-minute bouts pin rival troops against each other for full-contact, closely refereed matches set apart by halftime performances and redirection of confused zambonis. In a battle for home-team territory, three local packs, much like highly competitive circus clowns, seek to defend the circular combat zone, including the Furious Truckstop Waitresses, the Copper Queens, and 2010’s crowd favorites, the Vice Squad. As an added bonus, this season marks the inaugural campaign of the league’s second travel team, the Bandoleras, who debut on December 17.
