Roller Derby bout coming to Hilo Saturday (Nov 26)


The Paradise Roller Girls are gearing up for their final bout of the season, “Barbies vs. G.I. Janes,” in an interleague match-up featuring some of the Big Island’s favorite skaters.

The action takes place Saturday, Nov. 26 at the Afook-Chinen Civic Auditorium. Doors open at 5 p.m., and the bout starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8 in advance, $10 at the door, and are available online at or through your favorite Paradise Roller Girl. Other ticket outlets include CD Wizard in Hilo, Oasis Skate Shop, Jungle Love, Mountain View Village Video, the Hilo Town Tavern, the Hilo Burger Joint, and Akmal’s Indian Food. PRG expects to sell out again so fans are encouraged to purchase tickets early.

Big Island Babes Junior Roller Derby will roll onto the track at half-time for some half-pint derby fun. This group of girls ranging in age 8 to 17 has been training since June, so come show your support for the future of roller derby on the Big Island.

This event is also a toy drive for the Lokahi Giving Project, which aims to provide support to needy families in Hawaii. Donations of new toys will be accepted on bout day at the door. Please help us bring smiles to the faces of our local keiki.

Paradise Roller Girls is a women’s flat track roller derby league based out of Hilo, Hawaii. The league began in February 2010 with a small group of thrill-seeking women looking for good fun in a quiet town. Now, more than 60 skaters and volunteers call this league home.

PRG is an Apprentice League of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) and adheres to the association’s rules as well as has qualified referees in the league.
