This is the 5th season that the women of the Penticton Pistoleras have been bringing roller derby to the South Okanagan. If you haven’t been to a bout yet, you need too! And it’s fun for the whole family.
The members are moms, partners, career women, boss women, general all-round great athletic ladies that dedicate their time twice per week to practice and look forward to bringing this game to the curling club and community once again this season.
The Penticton Pistorleras could not bring this awesome roller derby action to the city of Penticton without the generous support of their sponsors. Please check out www.sorda.ca to see our favourite local businesses and medical practitioners, and to learn how you can support local roller derby.

Mark your calendars on April 22! Come watch your Penticton Pistoleras dish out a refreshing Spring Smack Down! Your Pistoleras are ready to hit the track, and their opponents. Bang! Bang!

 Final Score 145 – 143 for the Pistoleras!

In case you missed it Squamish Womens Roller Derby played our Penticton Pistoleras Roller Derby on June 18th!! Thanks to Shaw TV Okanagan for filming it and now for your viewing pleasure on you tube!!

Same great time, same great derby!

Join the Penticton Pistoleras as they take on the Sea to Sky Sirens from Squamish, in this, their last home bout of the season.

We have a great food vendor returning to nourish the hungry mouths at the bout, Yaki’s Pizza and Subs out of Summerland. Not only are they providing us with some great food, they are also a ticket location leading up to the bout. Check them out on Jubilee Road in Summerland.

And what’s great food without great drink? Thanks again Bad Tattoo for supporting the derby girls with your delicious beverages. And to all the fans who have supported us by buying tickets for the Bad Tattoo raffle – the winner will be announced at half time! We’d love to see you accept your price in person, though you aren’t required to be there to receive it.

Stay safe behind the ‘suicide seating’ and you’ll be at the best spot for all the action. Not only will you have a great view of the hard-hitting derby girls, you’ll also be in prime seating for checking out the merchandise table, where we’ll be selling lots of Pistoleras swag including tank tops, trucker hats, buttons and tattoos. We’ll have a snack table set up with candies, chips, and sodas, and be on the look out for one of our lovely Pistoleras selling 50/50 tickets. Proceeds from the 50/50 draw are being donated to our chosen charity this season, OSNS Child & Youth Development Center.

Derby is incredibly fun and challenging and we encourage everyone to come out and show us your support. And if you’re interested in knowing more just ask any of the Pistoleras who are working at the door, the merch table, the refreshment tables, or the 50/50. We love sharing our enthusiasm!

Tickets to the June 18th bout, SUMMER SHOVIN’, can be purchased at Yaki’s in Summerland, or at LockWorks Inc., Saint Germain Café & Gallery, or Picture This Custom Framing in Penticton. Tickets are $10 in advance or $12 @ the door. Doors open at 6:00pm, first whistle @7pm
