Blue Ridge Rollergirls in Asheville, NC



In June 2006, Asheville joined ranks with many other towns in being home to an applicant, or member, of the official Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) league. A revival of the 1935 American- born sport began in 2001, and this time it started as an all-female sport.
