An Austin original, TXRD has been wowing crowds since breathing new life into the sport of roller derby in 2001. Our unique blend of camp and athleticism continues to win over new fans young and old while staying in tune with our old-school derby roots. TXRD’s own brand of banked track roller derby truly is the most entertaining sport in the world. TXRD has five teams - Holy Rollers, Hellcats, Putas del Fuego, Cherry Bombs and Rhinestone Cowgirls. TXRD is skater owned and operated and each member plays a roll in the continued success of the league.
We here at the Darker Side are *not* sports fans, but we love roller derby. Roller derby is the punk rock of sports. We especially love TXRD’s brand of banked track derby. It’s always fast, exciting and fun. During intermissions you can catch a punk or metal band, too.
