Area 705 Roller Derby and Peterborough Roller Derby announce our recent merger to consolidate the derby community in Peterborough County.
After several months of preparation & discussion between the two boards, the merger was formalized at an inaugural Annual General Meeting on March 31 2015, with the election of a new board voted in comprised of members from the blended league.
Our big happy derby family was busy getting game-ready at the Douro Community Arena this past Sunday and are super excited for our upcoming season!
Stay tuned for more details as the season unfolds!
