THE girls from the Clarence Valley Roller Derby League are all fired up about hosting a free open night at the Grafton Sports Centre tonight.

And when the roller derby girls fire up, bystanders better be wearing the appropriate safety equipment.

"There is no experience needed. We teach you everything," CVRDL's Shelly Quinn said.

"We also have a Skate 4 Fitness option for those who think knocking each other around is crazy."

The free open night starts at 6.30pm at the Grafton Sports Centre, 300 Powell St, and will conclude at 9pm.

"This is a free night so everyone can come along and see what the sport of roller derby is all about,'' Quinn said.

"The derby girls are really looking forward to meeting some of the Grafton girls and teaching them a thing or two.

"Guys are also more than welcome; we are always on the lookout for referees."
