Today’s Philly 101 video features Erica Vanstone, announcer for the Philly Roller Girls, a skater-owned and operated roller derby league and a proud member of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association.
There are three local home teams that compete against one another at Philadelphia venues: the Broad Street Butchers, the Heavy Metal Hookers and the Philthy Britches. There are also two travel teams that compete in Philadelphia and travel the country to bout against other travel teams: the Liberty Belles and the Independence Dolls.
Check out the Girls at their next match Saturday, July 14 at the Liacouras Center, their brand hew home.
Watch the video above to see them in action, and learn what announcer Erica wishes you knew more about in Philadelphia.
Note: Erica was the winner of our Philly 101 reader contest!
