The Louisey Rider Cup – the low down

The Louisey Rider Cup is only a day away, folks! With is in mind, the peeps at NRD wanted to give you all ‘the skinny’ about the chain of events on this most awesome day !

In short, there are five co-ed teams, each playing four games of 20 minutes.
Teams are given 2 points for a win, and 1 point for each multiple of 66 points that they score in their game.The winner is the team with the most tournament points at the end, in the event of a tie, it goes to points differential. Exciting!

The winners of the first part will then play a game with 2, twenty minute ‘hard clock’ periods, against a team made up of 10 pre-selected NRD All-Stars, with the remaining 4 slots taken by the MVPs from the runner-up teams in part 1.

Get it? Good !  Although…don’t worry if not, there’ll be lots of friendly NRD folk around on the day to help people figure out what the heck is going on.

All you need to know as a roller derby rookie is; It’s fast and furious and so much fun !!

NRD all stars
