The London Rollergirls have finally announced the identity of their secret opponents!  On March 20th, LRG will be hosting the Texas Rollergirls' Hustlers 

ThTexas Rollergirls are widely regarded as the godmothers of women’s flat track roller derby being the original league that got it all going back in 2002. The Hustlers feature several members of the fearsome Texecutioners, the TXRG all-star team (ranked #1 in the WFTDA South Central region and heading to Nationals in November as one of the top four seeds) as well as a couple of girls who have been playing derby right since the start.  In fact, 'Babe Ruthless' the namesake of Ellen Page's character in the recent roller derby film Whip It! now skates for the Hustlers!
LRG are incredibly proud and excited to host them in London, and acknowledge this will be their toughest test yet.
More info to come soon regarding venue, ticket info and other exciting derby events happening that weekend, but for now, save the date… if you’re in the UK and you love derby, London is where you want to be that weekend
