CB Roller Derby

The Tar City Rollers

It's been called an expression of the third wave of feminism, an independent, do it yourself alternative sport that celebrates woman of all ages and abilities and it's rooting right here in Cape Breton.

Yes, we're talking about Roller Derby.

Trash talking, bumping, bruising, and fun.

This weekend they're having an open house at the Centennial Area in Sydney to look for new members and volunteers to help with events.

We dropped by the arena last night for one of their practices and a look at this collective of 30 women and the culture of roller derby.
