The decision to buy bleachers and a scoreboard to temporarily turn the Classic Center's exhibit hall into an arena is paying off.
The Classic City Rollergirls announced Thursday that they will be moving from Athens Arena on Atlanta Highway to the Classic Center when their next season starts in January.
“We are excited to offer our fans the comforts of The Classic Center and all of the attractions of downtown on bout day,” skater and league president Stevie Hretz said in a statement. “The Classic Center’s commitment to charity and to improving our community is very much in line with our mission and makes for a promising partnership moving forward.”
Oh, and by the way, the Rollergirls are holding a three-day boot camp Oct. 21, 23 and 27 for anyone who's interested in joining the roller derby squad.
