Glow it up for Derby Dolls volleyball fundraiser

The Rum City Derby Dolls will be swapping their helmets and uniforms for glow in the dark beach volleyball gear for their next fundraising event.

The Rum City Derby Dolls will be taking off their skates and hitting the sand for their upcoming beach volleyball fundraiser at Beach 365.

The event will feature a glow in the dark theme with participants asked to dress in a white t-shirt and accessories to sparkle when the neon lights are turned on.

Lacey Kitty, treasurer of the group, said the first-time beach volleyball fundraising event would enable the Rum City Derby Dolls league to get some much-needed, new sports equipment.

She said Rum City Derby Dolls is a non-profit organisation run by volunteers, by the skater, for the skater.

“RCDD is dedicated to promoting the sport of women's flat track roller derby and supports, encourages and develops skaters in their skating ability, whilst promoting the values of goodwill and good sportsmanship,” she said.

“We meet every Tuesday night to train at Shalom hall and host/skate at various events throughout the year.

“We are hoping to hold many small events throughout the year to grow our community presence.”

Lacey said being part of the team was something that she enjoyed, with many benefits involved in the skating sport.

“I absolutely love the sportsmanship of Roller Derby and how we all help each other out,” she said.

Rum City Derby Dolls player Dread'ful takes on the opposition.

For those wanting to take part in the Glow beach volleyball competition, Lacey said teams were encouraged to sign up now.

“Nomination forms are now available, just tell us your team occupation and come up with a creative name for the night! ” she said.

“Food and drink will be available for purchase on the night and there will be plenty of raffles and prizes.

“Family and friends are also welcome to come along and cheer on the teams.”

The Glow in the Dark beach volleyball event will be held at Beach 365, Steptoe Street, from 7pm to 8pm on Saturday, 29 February.

Sign-up costs $90 per team.
