Hundreds of roller derby women and their fans will be taking over Duluth this weekend.

The Twin Ports' Harbor City Roller Dames are hosting the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Division 2 Playoffs.

Ten teams will play all weekend down at the DECC. While the Dames aren't playing this weekend, Kate "Grainger" Minier says the competition they will see sets a great goal.

"It's a huge opportunity for us in terms of seeing derby on a bigger level in our town, bringing that kind of bigger excitement to Duluth but also for some of our members to see these higher ranked teams," said the co-captain.

Media head Jenna "MoniStab Seven" Warmuth said this tournament will be on a whole new level.

"We are talking ten teams. They come from Omaha, New York state, and there are people from New Orleans coming. I mean, they are all over the map all over the country. It's very exciting," she said. 

Tickets are on sale at the DECC ticket office. Ticket information is available here.
