Sparkle Plenty is one of the originators of modern flat track roller derby. She retired from competitive derby in 2008, but is still involved with the Texas Rollergirls through our recreational league and our junior derby league.
Everyone who currently plays roller derby should be thankful for Sparkle and the other awesome women who decided to bring back the wonderful sport of roller derby. This is the fastest growing sport for women worldwide.
It’s amazing, it’s huge, and it all started here in Austin.
*By the way, we recorded this video in February, which is why we’re drinking hot tea and Sparkle is wearing a sweatshirt.
