Nottingham Roller Derby Team Hellfire Harlots to Play Newcastle Roller Girls on Saturday


Hotter than hell and eager to start the new year with an almighty bang, Nottingham’s very own Hellfire Harlots will take on the Newcastle Roller Girls in their first home game of the year on Saturday 11th February 2012.

If you’ve never heard of roller derby, this is what you need to know: Roller derby is a contact sport played on roller skates. Two teams field five people, four blockers and one jammer.

To score points, jammers must try and overtake the other team’s players. The jammer that breaks through the pack first is declared lead jammer, and jammers can then go on to score points by passing the other team’s players. It’s exciting to play and even more exciting to watch.

Considering the Hellfire Harlots are a relatively new team, they have achieved a huge amount in a short time and have done Nottingham proud. Not only did the roller derby team win the Broxtowe Sports Club of the Year award in 2011, they enjoyed an uninterrupted winning streak on the track and ferociously supported their team captain, el Visious when she was selected to represent England in the very first Roller Derby World Cup in Toronto. After an incredible 2011, the Hellfire Harlots are just getting warmed up and are showing no signs of slowing up! The calendar is rapidly filling up with events for the Hellfire Harlots so watch this space to see the Nottingham team in action.
