The countdown is on. In just under two weeks, the first whistle will be blown for Australia’s national roller derby tournament, The Great Southern Slam (TGSS), which will be held here in Adelaide over the June long weekend, Saturday, 11 June to Monday 13 June.
The founder of this event, Adelaide Roller Derby, is excited to host all 45 national and international leagues at the Adelaide Showground and show them what Adelaide has to offer, both in a competitive and cultural sense.
The three-day tournament will see over 80 games played across two divisions that will determine who are the top leagues across A and B levels:
Saturday, Division 1 & 2 Tournaments
Sunday, Division 1 & 2 Tournaments and Quarter Finals
Monday, Division 1 & 2 Semi Finals and Grand Finals
Tickets are now available to the general public.
To experience the full weekend, purchase a pre-sale weekend pass for $60 + booking fee via Oztix, www.oztix.com.au.
