About This Deal
Like learning to use chopsticks, roller skating takes patience, dedication, and a particularly dexterous set of toes. Watch people show off how flexible their feet are with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two tickets to the Jacksonville RollerGirls home opening double-header at the University of North Florida Arena on Saturday, April 16 at 6 p.m.
The Jacksonville RollerGirls’ derby divas, members of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association, deliver fast-paced, four-wheeled fun to crash-craving audiences. The group of more than 70 wheeled warriors is split into four teams, composed of hip-checking hustlers such as Crash Register and Kat Von Skratchereyezout, who whip around corners toppling opponents like human bowling pins in search of points and respect in the streets. This year’s home-opening bout features two of the Jacksonville RollerGirls’ teams—the River City Rat Pack and New Jax City Rollers—skating against Knoxville’s Hard Knox Roller Girls to determine which team gets to join the NFL.
When they’re not bringing out-of-town teams to their padded knees, the RollerGirls choose not to spin their wheels, but instead they contribute to the Jacksonville community through various volunteer activities, including holding drives for Toys for Tots and participating in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
