Roller Derby in Coney Island Driven by Girl Power
If you like tough girls and intense sports, there’s an NYC sporting event you need to see. The Gotham Girls Roller Derby brings the thrills and spills of the fastest contact sport on four wheels to the Abe Stark Arena on the Coney Island Boardwalk. Root for the home team as the Brooklyn Bombshells do battle against rivals such as the Manhattan Mayhem, Queens of Pain and Bronx Gridlock, and when all the teams join forces as the Gotham Girls All-Stars for stirring interleague competition.
Founded in 2003 as a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, the Gotham Girls not only introduced a new element of roller derby to NYC. It operates on the mission of helping amateur female athletes develop skills, engage in serious competition and enhance their physical and mental strength.
