DENTON DOES ROLLER DERBY
North Texas Derby Revolution hosts first bout in new location
Denton, Texas, June 1, 2012: On Saturday June 30, 2012, NTDR will be holding their first bout at House of Quad, the new all-derby facility located at 222 S. Mayhill Rd in Denton, Texas (formerly Hat Trick Hockey).
Doors open at 6:00, with a starting whistle at 6:30. This kicks off a double-header that includes an important match between the Main St Mafia and the Hickory St Hooligans. If the Mafia win, they will be guaranteed a spot in the season championship in July. If Hooligans win, it will come down to a matter of point spreads: Muertas Locas have 2 wins, Mafia 2, and Hooligans 1, so it is still anyone’s game! All events are BYOB (no glass, 21+ only with alcohol please) and BYO chair. Tickets available soon through www.brownpapertickets.com. Children 12 and under are free. Join skaters and fans for the after party at the Abbey Underground on the historic Denton Square.
For this bout, NTDR will be supporting the Russ Martin Listeners Foundation, a DFW-based group which supports the families of police and firefighters who have fallen in the line of duty. NTDR will give a portion of game proceeds to this charity, while fans will have an opportunity to learn more about them and donate as well.

House of Quad oversees NTDR women’s roller derby, Denton County Outlaws men’s roller derby, and Rolling Rebellion junior (unisex) derby. The sport of roller derby has been growing quickly around the world, and HOQ has put Denton and North Texas on the map with 3 leagues and a new derby-only facility.
House of Quad, a North Texas-based roller derby organization, will officially open its doors June 1st of 2012 and will welcome its skaters to its newly-acquired large facility based in Denton, Texas. The building, formerly known as Hat Trick, used to house an indoor hockey rink. The building will now become home to the newest roller derby training facility, an exciting venture for Denton and its surrounding areas.
House of Quad is parent to 3 North Texas-based roller derby leagues, North Texas Derby Revolution (all-female flat track roller derby league), the Denton County Outlaws (all-male flat track roller derby league), and The Rolling Rebellion (junior roller derby league). These 3 leagues will now be offered daily opportunities to practice the fast-growing sport of roller derby. Skater owned and operated, this building is sure to become a local staple.
Continuing, the building, located at 222 South Mayhill Road, will also house House of Quad’s newest partner, Derby 4All Texas! Derby 4All Texas is the newest skate shop in North Texas! Fully stocked with all roller derby and skating equipment, this will act as a one-stop shop for your entire roller derby needs.
