MVP of the Week: What a Bout! Roller Derby Magazine

This is a brand new derby magazine coming from POLAND!

“What A Bout!” is for all of you: skaters, players, officials, volunteers, photographers, sponsors, merchants, and fans. For everyone who loves this sport and contributes to its development every day. We would like to join you in this! We want to be here for you and help you raise awareness about roller derby.
