So this girl whines about "cultural appropriation" and then doesn't even know enough about what she claims to be her culture to avoid screwing up even entering the place.
This is a fantastic piece: Bryan did a great job of talking to a ton of important voices on the local scene.
Durham Parks & Rec has pickleball as well.

Wonderful insight into the world of derby. Thanks for sharing how awesome a sport this truly is. These girls work hard, put on a hell of a show, and do it all for the love of the sport, the league and each other.
And on a side note, the next tryouts are coming up on June 5th.

I play for the cape fear roller girls in wilmington, nc (btw, we are bouting with the CRG Bootleggers on May 15th) and I have to say this is one of the most well-written, comprehensive and accurate articles that has been written about the the now-decade old revival of women's roller derby. We are not just pretty faces in tight tops. We don't play this sport for the fame and certainly not the money (I don't know of a single team that pays their skaters); we do it for love of the game and love of our teammates AND opponents. Thanks for getting it right, INDY!
