Harry Potter and Roller Derby?!? How can life get any better? Tucson Roller Derby is hosting the first ever Harry Potter Wizard’s Cup in Tucson on July 15th! You won’t want to miss it! The evening will be comprised of four mini bouts (20 minutes each) to see which Hogwarts House will prevail! You know how the houses perform on broomsticks, now see house members fly around the rink on skates! Join in on the fun and don't forget to wear your favorite Harry Potter attire!
Bout 1: Gryffindor v Ravenclaw
Bout 2: Hufflepuff v Slytherin
Bout 3: Loser of B1 v Loser of B2
Bout 4: Winner of B1 v Winner of B2 (championship bout)
The best part? Wizards and Muggles alike can control the game! Without even strapping skates on! Buy spells that can influence scores and game play! All proceeds go towards Tucson Roller Derby (remember, we are a 501c3 non-profit).
