It's just a few weeks until our first game of 2015, and it's a British Championship game at that!
We'll be kicking off 2015 by facing off against Severn Roller Torrent, who narrowly beat us in last years South West Heartland Series Final. There was an amazing crowd, the teams were wild and there were big hits and huge cheers all day!! We are excited to be up against them again to see if we can turn the tables this time...
On 14th Feb we'll be joined by Big Bucks High Rollers, on their first trip to Plymouth. They'll be taking to the track against the lovely but formidable Dorset Roller Girls.
We've been training harder, skating faster and dreaming bigger since our 2nd place in the Heartland Series Final last year and we can't wait to get back on the track!
We'll be raising money on the day through our raffle for Jeremiah's Journey, in memory of Simon Rancid Badger Knight. If you would like to donate any goods or vouchers to our raffle to help us raise as much as possible then please get in touch!
Check out the event page here to keep up to date with details for the day.
We're about to open our doors to a new intake of fresh meat! To get you in the mood we're offering up TWO TASTER SESSIONS prior to the fresh meat training period, to help you decide if spending 90% of the rest of your life on 8 wheels is for you!
Join us on the 10th and the 17th December at Plymouth John Kitto YMCA 8pm-10pm for just £5 inc kit hire (please email ahead to secure kit!).
You don't need to have any skating experience, you do need to be 18+ and have a bucket load of determination.
There will be no contact play until you're totally ready - usually a few weeks into the Fresh Meat training program.

...For the South West Divisional Final of the Heartland Series 2014 - The Blocky Horror Show!
Join PCRG on October 26th for a triple header featuring the top teams from across the South West.
Tickets are available from our Tickets page NOW!
Here at PCRG HQ we are approaching our summer training hiatus, the month of August where we get out of the sweaty sports hall that is our home three nights a week, and make the most of the beautiful beaches which surround us. That's right folks your favourite Plymouth Roller Derby team may be cooling our wheels for a bit but we certainly won't be cooling our heels. The surfing extraordinaire among us will be riding some totally awesome waves, Dude, while some of us will be working on our core strength aka desperately clinging on to a board trying not to choke on salt. There will be team paddle boarding, comedy value included and of course no summer would be complete without swimming at the lido.
So, no wheels at all? Ah, who am I kidding? There may be some skating, maybe a little...OK a lot. Getting roller girls and boys to hang up their skates for a whole month is a hard push..luckily Plymouth has THE best outdoor skating, I'm just going to say it...in the WORLD!! Not only is there oodles of beautiful, skateble concrete, an incline for some burning quad action, but helpfully there are moving obstacles in the form of children and dogs to help us with those razor sharp reactions and agility drills. The greatest feature of this outdoor skating haven is the view, as you glide along on your chosen method of transport: quads, penny, long or hover board, you may believe you are on a tropical island as you gaze out over azure waters. And most special of all is the view of our very secret island of Drake, I shouldn't really be telling you this but PCRG's ambitious plans for the occupation of said Island are coming along nicely, just call us The Secret 26!
Anyone who has been fortunate enough to visit Plym Town will know the location I describe is the famous hoe, featuring the very lighthouse that we rock on our bouting vests, Smeatons Tower, thanks to Roller Derby City . As a bunch of fearless fighters for female freedom we would normally object most fiercely to the H word but hell we are proud to be Plymouth Hoes.
Ah, summer plans....almost makes you want to sing, dance and wear pastels...almost.
During our 'break', we will be hosting the most spectacular bout yet... Jukes' Jamboree in tribute to the gorgeous Jukes who really did spread a little sunshine everywhere she went. This is so special it is hard to describe. When it was suggested to Jukes she was excited, and everyone who knew her can imagine she had some ideas to contribute! She wanted yellow, purple, vintage and her two teams, Plymouth and Cornwall to go head to head in a friendly again. As well as fulfilling this wish we are raising money for Macmillan to contribute to the amazing job they do in supporting people with cancer and their loved ones. Tickets are still on sale on our website www.plymouthcityrollergirls.co.uk/tickets. For the love of yellow you do not want to miss this!
I'm beginning to think we need a lesson in the meaning of taking a break....there is just too much fun to have and you know you just can't keep a great derby team down!
We'll be back on a track near you, ok actually us, in September to continue our Heartlands mission.
This is Bella Trips reporting from PCRG HQ, over and out.
Karaoke is a PCRG tradition for our recently minimum skills passed rookies! We welcome everyone to come along and celebrate with us the mega skating skills of our new skaters and to toast to their future successful derby careers!
Well something like that anyway! Usually we just drink a lot of ale, Muscle Sprout does some rapping and Drea Feelgood sings everything in a Westcountry accent! You may even catch a few heartfelt ballads such as the one in the picture! Believe us, it is not to be missed!
FREE ENTRY and lots of laughs!
The Fortescue, Mutley Plain, 7:30 onwards Friday July 11th
Get your Velcro skirt ready for Plymouth City Roller Girls second home game of 2014! This double header will see PCRG's A team take on the Cardiff Roller Girls and Devon's men's team 'Kings of Block n Roll' against Irish men's team 'Men Behaving Derby'.
Aside from the hard-hitting bone-crunching exploits on track, there'll be a host of Eurovision-themed activities to keep everybody entertained, including a raffle filled with goodies, prizes for the best crowd pic on Facebook or Twitter and much more. Basically, it's going to be raving! (sorry...)
So far we have goodies from Skates.co.uk, GNC, Carmen Getsome Clothing and Plymouth Arts Centre (Murderdrome anyone?!) to give away on the day.
If that was not enough, we are hosting our own Eurovision party afterwards at our favourite venue The Vauxhall Quay - most of our A team get together every year to watch Eurovision and have come up with some drinking game rules - be sure to come along to get involved in the action!
