This weekend it’s all about the sports you don’t regularly see featured in mainstream media. But that doesn’t mean Bristol isn’t awash with great sport. Because it is.
Sport Watch Bristol will be at the roller derby double-header this Saturday at Filton College, WISE Campus, BS34 8LP. Join us as we cheer our Bristol Harbour Harlots A team as they take on Nottingham Hellfire Harlots. You’ll also be there to support Bristol Harbour Harlots B as they play Cornwall Roller Derby. Doors open at 2pm. The first bout (B team) is at 3:00pm with the A team starting at 5:00pm.
Also on Saturday, Bristol Storm Juniors play Bristol Storm in a game that’s all about Bristol! What better way to support your city’s athletes than to show up on Saturday for this match. The game starts at 2pm at Bristol Brunel Academy, BS15 1NU.
Bristol Volleyball Club and the City of Bristol Ladies are both playing at home this Sunday 8 December. For a full day of volleyball, turn up to Abbeywood School, New Road, Bristol BS34 8SF. Bristol 2 will be playing Team Southampton at 11:30am followed by a match against City of Bristol Ladies at 3:30pm. In between, you can watch City of Bristol Ladies take on Team Southampton at 1:30pm.
You’ll have to wait until January to see our Bristol 1 team at home. They’re currently third in the National Volleyball League, Women’s Division 1.
We recently reported on Korfball in a blog post but there’s no better way to understand the game than showing up to a match! On Sunday 8 December you can see Bristol Thunder 3 take on University of Exeter 2 at Kingsdown Sports Centre, BS2 8HL.
Away for rugby, break for hockey
For our rugby fans, you’ll need to get yourself to Worcester where Bristol Ladies Rugby will be on Sunday. As for hockey – well, it’ll be a little while before we’ll be watching Clifton fight it out again. The Investec Women’s Hockey League takes a break until 8 February when Clifton will be back at home facing University of Birmingham.
