Roller derby is both physically demanding and highly tactical and yet there is a place for everyone, no matter their background.
Since we began in late May 2010, we have always aimed high. Initially we set out to be the first team to bring live roller derby to Nottingham. We achieved this on June 4 2011 with our first highly successful home bout against Yorkshire’s Hotwheel Roller Derby, where we emerged victorious.
2011 also saw us become members of the UK Roller Derby Association (UKRDA).
In 2012 we started working towards becoming part of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA). We had apprentice status until 2013, after which we became fully affiliated, allowing us to compete internationally.
Since then, the team has grown from strength to strength. 60 members strong, our league now sees both our A and B team regularly playing in competitive games.
2017 saw the league host our very first international roller derby tournament Track Attack! Teams from Leeds, Brussels and Dundee joined Nottingham Hellfire Harlots A team in Clifton for two brilliant days of roller derby excitement.
2018 was a monumental year for Nottingham Hellfire Harlots. We won our first international tournament West Track Story VI, beating Antwerp, Nantes, Tampere and Amsterdam to take home the trophy. A string of well-played games then saw us break the top 100 of the WFTDA rankings in November, climbing to 96th.
2019 continues to be a exceptional year for our league, with our B team competing in Tier 2 East of the British Championships and some exciting challenges lined up for A team.
