Nashville Rollergirls or NRG, are a women’s flat-track roller derby league based in Nashville, Tennessee. The NRG are a member of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA). The team was founded in 2006 and became the 55th member of the WFTDA in 2008. The NRG league is composed of two travel teams. The Music City All Stars are the premier travel team featuring the top skaters of the league, while the Music City Brawl Stars are the B-team showcasing up-and-coming skaters.
“It fulfills all kinds of criteria,’ says June 2013 NRG Rollergirl of the Month Rollergirl Dani Doom, “competitiveness, staying in shape, building relationships, learning, changing, developing myself, glory…”
The All-Stars are returning to their home track, after a hard-fought 170-141 victory over the D.C. Rollergirls on May 11 at Municipal Auditorium. That afternoon, the Music City Brawl Stars enjoyed a 262-139 win over the National Maulers.
“I originally did it to get in shape and make some friends. I do it now because I love the competitiveness and drive it has given me,” says May 2013 NRG Rollergirl of the Month Evil Mendes. “It pushes me to what I thought was my limit and then some.”
