Mad Rollin' Dolls kick off regular season at Veterans Memorial Coliseum
On Saturday, January 10, the Mad Rollin' Dolls, Madison's premiere women's flat-track roller derby league, will start their fifth home season in a brand new venue and at an earlier time.
The Dolls played their final bout at Fast Forward Skate Center—which they called home for more than four years—last month, and are excited for their fifth regular season in Madison, featuring a seven-game schedule that will be held entirely at the Alliant Energy Center. The season's games will be spread out across the Alliant campus, including the Coliseum, Expo Hall, and Arena building. The Alliant Energy Center is located at 1919 Alliant Energy Center Way, Madison, near Rimrock Road and John Nolen Drive.
Saturday's match-ups will see the reigning 2008 champions, the Quad Squad, take on the Vaudeville Vixens, and the Reservoir Dolls will face the Unholy Rollers. The teams will introduce a fresh crop of skaters, and the season promises to be full of the fastest, strongest derby yet—and maybe a few surprises.
Join the Dolls after the bout at the High Noon Saloon, 701 E. Washington Ave., for a season kickoff after-party featuring Them Damn Young Livers, The Hussy, and ifihadahifi. The show is free with ticket stub, $5 without.
