Eastside Rock'n Rollers

Ever heard of Roller Derby? No? Yesterday was great fun, as we shot some funny pictures of the Eastside Rock'n Rollers , the Roller Derby girl's team from Enschede, the Netherlands.

Roller derby is a full-contact sport played on rollerskates. It is one of the fastest growing sports in the world, with an estimated 400 leagues worldwide. There are now five leagues in the Netherlands located in Amsterdam, Enschede, Eindhoven, Arnhem, Groningen, Utrecht and Rotterdam/Den Haag.

Games consist of 2 thirty minute periods. Each period is broken down into jams of 2 minutes or less. Each team fields 5 players on an oval track. One of these players is designated as the jammer and can earn points by passing members of the other team. The rest of the skaters make up the pack and their job is to help their jammer through and stop the opposing jammer from passing them. Enter the full-contact aspect and the fun.

At least, that's what the website of the Eastside Rock'n Rollers says! To me it looks like a sort of girl's rugby on skates, fun guaranteed!

The photo's were done really quickly, as we had about a little more than 3 hours before the bar opened (y'know, this is the sort of girls who are distracted when they smell beer or Jack Daniels, so beware!) We had such a great time, thanks!!

The team!
