VIDEO: Bridlington Rock and Rollers looking for sponsorship

A roller derby team is hoping to attract others from around the country to an event in Bridlington - but needs sponsorship to make it happen.

The Bridlington Rock and Rollers are hoping to arrange a bout at Bridlington Spa on October 19 and already have interest from teams in Oxford, Birmingham, Sheffield, Glasgow, Hull and York.

Coach Barry Peace says that venue hire and other costs are needed to stage the event - but thinks it is a great opportunity to bring more tourists in to the town.

The team practice on Thursdays from 7pm-8pm, while more senior members also practice on Saturdays from 10am to 12 noon at Bridlington Sports Centre on Gypsey Road.

Anyone that wants to help sponsor the event should email bridrockandrollers@outlook.com or search ‘Bridlington Rock & Rollers’ on Facebook.
