In the second bout, Greensboro Roller Derby’s all-star team, the Gate City Rollergirls, will go head-to-head with Cape Fear Roller Girls’ Black Harrts.

Bewitched is a family-friendly event. Costumes are encouraged for everyone, and there will be activities for the kids! Tickets will be available at the door. To avoid the rush and skip the line, fans are advised to take advantage of advance ticket sales online at or through our website, Adult tickets are $10.

Greensboro Roller Derby was founded in February 2010. Since the league’s debut bout in October of 2010, Greensboro Roller Derby has spent the last year competing both locally and regionally. Following this bout, Greensboro Roller Derby will wrap up the season with home team bouts in November and December.
