To properly curtsy, a lady must bend at the knees, sweep one foot behind, then slam into anyone who happens to be passing on her right. Inject a dose of kinetic estrogen into your life with today's Groupon: for $4, you will receive a ticket (up to a $9 value) to your choice of a Rubber City Rollergirls roller derby bout at the John S. Knight Center. The John S. Knight Center boasts free parking, and doors open at 5 p.m. on bout days.

The Rubber City Rollergirls are Akron's own team of fast-skating, jam-leading roller derby women. Today's Groupon gets you a ticket to your choice of the following events:

  • Rubber City Rollergirls vs. Glass City Rollers double-header on Saturday, August 14, at 6 p.m.
  • Rubber City Rollergirls vs. Gem City Rollers on Saturday, September 18, at 6 p.m.

Unlike competitive high school dating, roller derby is not a violent bloodbath dominated by mean girls. Rather, it is a competitive sport where each team's jammer (designated by the star on her helmet and blinding speed) tries to be the first to break through an intimidating pack of blockers during two-minute "jams," evading hip thrusts, ambushes by train robbers, and a bank full of bounced body checks (deemed void if cashed from behind, and strictly penalized) in the process. During the two 30-minute periods that make up a bout, you'll witness more high-speed jam sessions than the audience during the Grateful Dead’s brief punk phase.

Despite boasting a team of 30 fierce and fearless flyers with names like Barbonic Plague, Nastalie Beating, Cyn City, and Shady Gaga, the Rubber City Rollergirls are a nonprofit organization that supports numerous causes affecting women and children. Their third annual Holiday Skate for the Kids will be held this November. Help them in their mission by watching them engage in centrifugal combat with today’s Groupon.
