The Nottingham Hellfire Harlots are a roller derby league based in Nottingham, England. Founded in April 2010, the league now has two bouting teams (an A and B team) who play against teams from other leagues.

History[edit]

The league was founded in May 2010 by seven former members of the Nottingham Roller Girls.[1] They initially trained at Sport Nottingham,[2] but lost access to the venue and, after a long search, moved to the Djanogly City Academy before[3] finally setting up their permanent home at Southglade Leisure Centre.

el VISIOUS, from the Harlots, played for Team England at the 2011 Roller Derby World Cup.[4] In December 2011, the Harlots won the Broxtowe Sports Club of the Year award.[5] Also in late 2011, the league joined the UK Roller Derby Association.

In October 2012, the Harlots were accepted as a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Programme.[6]

In May 2014, the Harlots took part in the Nottingham Playhouse's tribute to Torville and Dean, Mass Bolero [7] and can be seen towards the end of the piece.

The Harlots also took part in their first WFTDA tournament, A Skate Odyssey, in Ghent 15–17 May 2015.
