ASBURY PARK, NJ - The Jersey Shore Roller Girls are at it again! Their 4th season is set to open on March 26th with another powerful display of grace and grit as the Murder Beach Militia take on the Anchor Assassins in Asbury Park's legendary Convention Hall. The bout will be a rematch of last year's nail-biting Championship Bout in which Murder Beach Militia eked out a five point win over the relentless Anchor Assassins. This season opener is sure to deliver 60 minutes of lightning-fast, hard-hitting, heart-pounding Roller Derby action. Don't worry, you'll have a chance to catch your breath during Soup's Internationally Known, Dog Catcher, Silver String, Submarine, All Start Competition Bagpipe Band entertainment and the family-favorite Chuck-A-Duck half-time event.
As always, the Jersey Shore Roller Girls - made up of hard working women from Monmouth, Ocean, Atlantic, Mercer and surrounding counties - have partnered with a charity for this bout to support and promote a very worthy cause. Representatives from Zonta International will be on hand during the bout to educate attendees about their mission and work. Zonta is a not-for-profit charitable organization that seeks to advance the status of women worldwide through service and advocacy. Learn more about their tireless efforts at www.zonta.org.

The March 26th bout also pairs with the Wonder Bar for the bout after party. Across the street from Convention Hall, the Wonder Bar will offer those bout attendees with a wristband no cover charge. The Roller Girls will be on hand and fully energized for any fans that want to keep the party going. The roller derby bout itself will prove to be another exciting evening of women’s flat-track roller derby. Roller derby is the newest, extreme sport for women rapidly sweeping the nation. Roller derby has been re-vamped into a flat-track version of the old-school style of a bank track. This is the real thing, not an orchestrated match-up. Jersey Shore Roller Girls, a league which formed in 2007, skates under the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) rules and regulations.
