Milwaukee’s roller derby league, the Brewcity Bruisers, are set to host the 5th annual Midwest BrewHaHa roller derby tournament this weekend, May 30 – June 1, at the U.S. Cellular Arena in downtown Milwaukee. The tournament features two derby tracks and more than 30 teams from all over the U.S. and Canada.
Midwest BrewHaHa kicks off on Friday afternoon, with bouts scheduled all weekend through Sunday night, June 1. All the action takes place at the U.S. Cellular Arena, located at 400 W. Kilbourn Ave in downtown Milwaukee. The full listing of participating teams and the bout schedule can be found at www.brewcitybruisers.com.
Now in its fifth year, Midwest BrewHaHa had to expand to three days of action. “This tournament has grown quickly and we are offering 30 bouts during the weekend,” said Anna Krajcik (aka Grace Killy), a Brewcity Bruiser and one of the BrewHaHa organizers. “This is a great opportunity to see some of the top roller derby teams in the country.”
Every day of the tournament features “sanctioned” bouts by the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WTFDA), which determine teams’ rankings and seeding for 2014 WFTDA Championship.
