Summer Sur5al – Sur5al of the Fittest

Sunday 24th August saw 15 teams from across the UK battle it out on the Roller Derby track to be crowned Sur5al of the Fittest.

There was roller derby, there was cake, there was an after party and luckily, there was a bank holiday Monday to recover!  The Sur5al tournament was first created by the Royal Windsor Rollergirls in 2012 and has had many successful themes since then.  Sur5al of the Fittest had several twists:  instead of sitting in the penalty box for 30 seconds, players had to plank away their sins,  if their knees or stomach touched the ground, the clock was stopped until they were back in full planking position.  There was also an air-horn that brought fear to pivots everywhere, as it signalled a mandatory star pass.  The biggest (and probably most terrifying) change to the usual Sur5al format however, came in the form of the Gladiskaters…  A formidable team of 5 UK roller derby superstars who were worth double points if you could beat them.  Their hits were hard and their jammers sailed through, with Reaper beating his own Sur5al record and picking up a grand total of 60 points in a single, 2-minute jam and occasionally taking off and flying over the apexes!

The Gladiators

It’s a good thing that the Gladiskaters were not allowed to win the tournament or any prizes as no one was able to beat them, though a few teams certainly gave it a good shot! Both team ‘Rebel Ink’ (Rebellion Roller Derby) and team ‘Seahorses Notever’ (Windsor and SDRD’s Shrooms) managed to pick up 3 jammer points against Team England’s; Rollin Stone R, Kid Block, Reaper, Jerry Attric and Trisha Smackanawa.

The Smashed Lasagnas

Notable players on the day were The Mortician (Team Wales), R.I.P McMurphy from the Portsmouth Roller Wenches with her ever-huge hits, Roxy Rink Rash from Kent Roller Girls who always has a smile on her face (especially when landing a huge hit) and Team Vagine Regime’s chosen 5 – whoever came up with the name ‘Ovary Action’ won Sur5al for me!

Vagine Regime’s – Ovary Action

The day was relatively injury-free as well, the main exception being the lovely Wu-Tang-Jam, jamming for Team Dave against the Gladiskaters.  She managed to land on her chin rather than any other body part in a huge takeout from Rollin Stone R.  Luckily the wonderful medical staff were on hand and patched her up (she’s fine folks!).

Seahorses Notever

Overall the winners were ‘The Smashed Lasagnas’ with 68 Sur5al points.  They were followed by ‘Seahorses Notever’ with 63 points and Suffolk ‘n’ Awesome in 3rd with 60.  Royal Windsor Rollergirls’ Cle-Blam-O picked up the award for most points scored in a single jam.

It was a fantastic day for players, officials and the audience, all of whom are surely looking forward to the next Sur5al…. stay tuned!

The Royal Windsor Rollergirls (RWRG) are hosting a special roller derby game on Saturday 16th August to raise money for local man Matt Rackley, who is hoping to travel to America for pioneering treatment on a brain tumour.
 
24-year-old electrician Matt – who lives in Cookham with girlfriend Hollie and one-year-old son Freddie  – has an inoperable brain tumour, but brother Chris is attempting to raise £150,000 to send Matt to the US for treatment that’s not currently available in the UK.
 
Players from Windsor’s A, B and C teams will get together to take on a team made up of players from Surrey, Kent, London, Hampshire and Buckinghamshire.
Roller derby is a high-octane, contact sport on roller skates; both teams are promising a highly-entertaining game with speed, agility and plenty of big hits! 
The fundraiser takes place at Windsor Leisure Centre, Saturday 16th August and doors open at 3.30pm.

Skate Marathon – Fundraising for Beach Brawl!

Royal Windsor Rollergirls love a bit of a challenge.

So, this Easter Bank Holiday, we will be taking part in a mammoth SKATE MARATHON that will take us from our regal town of Windsor to the vibrant City of London. It’s a formidable distance when relying on leg power alone, but it’s just a small journey in comparison to what RWRG have coming up!
To help raise funds for our trip to Florida for the Beach Brawl Tournament in May, we will be lacing up our skates and following the historic route of the first ever ‘polytechnic’ marathon – the first marathon with the now standard distance of 26 miles and 385 yards. Since this was recorded as starting at Windsor Castle, what could be a better event for a team from that Royal borough! Legs will burn and blisters are sure to be had, but it’s all for a good cause – getting us across the pond for our first ever game in the US of A! So please, support RWRG by donating anything you can, as roller derby is funded almost purely by the players.

Follow the link: www.gofundme.com/royalwindsorrollergirls

Our lovely sponsor, Skate Station, will be joining us for the full route to attend to any loose plates or wonky wheels that 26 miles or rough surfaces could bring about. Please check out their skate shop, stocking all the latest products: www.skatestation.co.uk

There are also many other ways you can support RWRG and help us get the America:

1) Get your ticket for the 50:50 Raffle – for just £5!

2) Buy a Beach Brawl vest – for just £12!

3) Dare a skater to complete a task for a fee with ‘Who Dares Windsor’  – for any price you see fit!

Or come to some of our home games!
