Q. What’s green, whips up a mean cake and takes to Penrith’s High Street on wheels?
A. Your favourite WSR derby guys and gals in the Penrith CBD Festival of the Green!
Skaters and bakers recently took to High Street as part of the annual street parade. Dressed all in green, representing a big, green derby machine, skaters of all ages and abilities represented the league on a scorching hot day.
Staying cool in spite of the conditions, WSR proved that they were talented on skates AND in the kitchen, selling a delicious array of baked goods. Skating and cupcakes? What’s not to love?! Make sure that you roll along to our next bout to catch all things sugar and skates.
Sydney is currently celebrating its 40th Mardi Gras. With gay marriage recently legalised in Australia (cue loud cheering); we’d like to say that if there’s one thing that Western Sydney Rollers (WSR) prides itself on (family friendly fun, good sportsmanship, etc aside), it’s the fact that we’re inclusive!
No matter what team you play for, you can play for us!
To everyone celebrating Mardi Gras this weekend, we hope you have a wonderful time!
Some of our fabulous league members recently starred in the Penrith Press, showcasing the league and its 10 year anniversary.
Looking fierce on the front page (!!) is one of the league’s founding members, Major Dil-Emma. Major Dil-Emma has been a source of inspiration throughout her time with WSR, tackling everything from training and bouting through to reffing and assisting on committees. Don’t be fooled by her war paint, Major Dil-Emma is super loyal when it comes to her team and her league.
Cut to the back page and you can meet more of our enthusiastic members and see why the sport of roller derby is so popular. With options for women, men, youngsters, skaters and officials; there is something for everyone in the sport of roller derby.
“It was always an inclusive sport for women; now it’s an inclusive sport for everyone,” – Major Dil-Emma
WSR is now recruiting… Take a chance, be fierce and join the family!
Special thanks to the Penrith Press for a rolling good article on WSR!
