The Hellfire Harlots are a roller derby league based in Nottingham, England. Founded in April 2010, the league has a single bouting team, which plays against teams from other leagues.

History

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.[3]

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]
