Background: The Nashville Rollergirls (NRG) are a group of hard hitting skaters who make up Music City’s all female flat track roller derby league. Founded by local women in 2006, the Nashville Rollergirls were inspired by a resurgence of roller derby across the South. Now in their fifth season, these ladies are the 2011 Tennessee State Roller Derby Champions, packing the Municipal Auditorium with crowds eager to catch a glimpse of what NBC News and ESPN have called “the fastest-growing female sport in America.”
