Final Score 98 – 71: The Blitz Dames skate to victory in our first international away bout!
Well, the travel team are having a well-deserved rest after a fantastic weekend in Stuttgart, hosted by the fast, fierce and foxy Stuttgart Valley RollerGirlz at the Sport Stuttgart Arena. It was the first time the Dames have travelled abroad for a bout and it was definitely well worth the air fare!
We pulled ahead to a decisive lead early in the bout, but it was very evenly matched for the rest of the first half with Stuttgart giving as good as they got. The Birmingham Blitz Derby Dames led 68-39 at halftime.
In the second period, Stuttgart came out hitting hard and gained some ground on us, but they were no match in the end for the stunning jamming skills of Hilda Blizzhard, Tear E. Hatchet, Union Jack-U-Up and especially Violet Attack, who zipped through the pack again and again!
Stuttgart were great hosts as well as great players. They and their massive crowd of enthusiastic supporters couldn’t have given us a warmer reception, or a better afterparty! We partied till the wee hours at the Keller Klub, with badass music, a riotous burlesque show and the crazy band, Action Team (imagine Electric Six crossed with the 118 118 guys…), plus plenty of beer a-flowing.
Kudos also to the stripey ones. As well as SVRG’s own refs, and two of our lovely Blitz Dames (Justine Credible and Kiki Kasplat), we were lucky enough to be joined by LRG’s own Ballistic Whistle and Crash Test from Canada’s Terminal City RollerGirls. Crash Test congratulated us afterwards on skating well and playing ‘a good, clean game – for roller derby!’

A picture of the recent bout in Stuttgart between the Stuttgart Valley Rollergirlz and the Birmingham Blitz Derby Dames appeared in the Canadian Globe and Mail
Canadian derby girls are asking, ‘Hey, why not a Canadian league?!’. Fair enough, but us European derby players won’t complain ;).
So to even the score I searched the Globe and Mail site for other derby related articles:
Stoli Von Stingray of the Terminal City Rollergirls (Vancouver, BC) is featured in this documentary showing the difference between her day job and night persona, and her personal take on derby.
A typical roller derby article featuring Montreal Roller Derby.
