The Sulphur City Steam Rollers’ annual sell-out event, Slam Rock returns to the city for its fourth year on Saturday, July 1st 2017!

Slam Rock 2017 sees the Steam Rollers’ A-team Motley Crew take on the Hellmilton Roller Ghouls in an on-skate battle, not for the faint hearted.

With a mix of Slam Rock veterans, along with some of the league’s newer players, Motley Crew are sure to have a large group of supporters in the crowd and it is anticipated tickets will sell quickly.

Half-time entertainment will include the Steam Rollers’ annual Slam Rock Air Guitar Competition, where members of the crowd are invited ‘on stage’ to show off their skills in the hope of winning a real guitar!

Prizes will also be given to the Best Dressed Adult and Child Rock Stars as well as the group with the Best Supporter Sign! Spot prizes will be floating around too.

The Sulphur City Steam Rollers will be selling merchandise and raffle tickets to their annual ‘Experience Rotorua’ fundraising raffle, which includes prizes from many different Rotorua tourism operators.

In the game of roller derby, which is full contact and has been likened to ‘rugby on skates’, players skate around an oval track in a pack made up of eight skaters, four from each team, who hold the position of blockers. Blockers must remain within a certain distance from each other at all times. Also on the track are jammers, one from each team who are the point scorers. It is the jammers’ role to attempt to ‘break’ through the pack and score points for each opposition player they pass.

Following an extensive rule set, modern roller derby also includes a large group of officials who keep the players in line and track game statistics. There are up to seven referees required during a game, each with individual responsibilities. Up to 14 Non-skating Officials are also required, and generally include newer skaters, or in Steam Roller terminology, Groupies.

Doors open at 6pm with game formalities commencing at 6:45pm. Food, non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase.

Doors open: 6pm
Game start: 6:45pm
Est. End Time: 8:45pm
