The Vendetta Vixens are a skater run and supported league that have been established since March 2011. During this time they have grown from having five members to currently having in excess of 30 skaters attending across our beginner, intermediate and advanced sessions. Their ethos has always been that of a democratic skater run and funded team. The Vixens are fortunate to have the support of talented and committed individuals and good relationships with local teams who have enabled them to achieve their goals to date including participating in The End of the World Series in 2012 and the Heartland 2013 and 2014 tournaments in addition to hosting a number of public games.
Our on-going aims are to participate in the British Championship’s and improve our rankings and performance throughout the season. We also aim to raise the profile of our B team who started bouting publicly last year. Additional aims include to continue to raise awareness of and gain funds for our team through various fund raising activities to enable us to buy further training equipment and put on public games both within and outside of the British Championships. Our fundraising activities also include raising money for local charities; currently we raise money for Northamptonshire Lowdown, a service providing free and confidential support for young people.
The Vendetta Vixens are proud of their reputation of being an approachable and welcoming team both to join and to play against. The team works hard to prove themselves to be worthy components and is grateful for the advice and support from teams that they have played and trained with over the past three years. The team always reflects the positive promotion of Roller Derby as indicated by their conduct and support of local charities and events.
The Vendetta Vixens will continue to operate as a democratic skater run and financed team and we hope that 2015 will enable us to build on our achievements to date, welcome new members and face new opponents.
