Ninjette plays on the allstar team, London Brawling and is the assistant captain of the LRG hometeam Ultraviolent Femmes. Having represented England in the Roller Derby World Cup in Toronto in December 2011, she is back training hard and has kindly agreed to meet me to chat all things Roller Derby.

Send me a question to ask Ninjette and you could win a pair of tickets for the next bout on the 3rd of March. It’s a game full of tactics, energy and passion and best of all it all happens on a pair of skates. so get thinking of your questions now.

The bout details:

You will see the Ultraviolent Femmes take on the Steam Rollers and in this double header the Harbour Grudges will also go up against the Central City Rollergirls from Birmingham. It’s a chance not to be missed as you get to see what has been quoted to be the fastest growing women’s sport in the world

Other people to say thanks to include Dante, Numbers, Phil Baker, Billyybiznizz and all those other fabtastic people who have got us to believe that this could happen.

Emma, when I met you I had no idea I would be here. Without you I am not even sure I would be. Thank you for listening!!!!

Henry and James…What can I say….A leap of faith indeed. Thank you. I hope we don’t disappoint!!!!!

Andrew at Tristar, thanks for sorting out the t-shirt image for us. Your tweak has made all the difference!!!

There are a couple of other people I need to say thanks to but they are not forgotten, just being thanked less publicly.

Look out for us at the Excell Centre Sunday 25th July 2010. It’s the XXL Street Dance championships and we are looking forward to rockin the joint and watching all those fantastic dance crews who will be competing to be the best in 2010.
