We’re super excited that this year, our Hell’s Belles will be competing in Tier 3 Regional East division of the British Championships!
Last year Hertfordshire Roller Derby’s Hell’s Belles won all the games to come top of Tier 4 Local Central South Division. Although the team didn’t take a top spot in playoffs, a slight rejig within the British Championships tournament structure means that the Belles have moved up. In addition a new Tier 5 has been created.
This year, Hell’s Belles will be competing against some old rivals and friends – Milton Keynes Roller Derby, The Norfolk Brawds and Killa Hurtz Roller Girls, as well as coming up against teams they’ve never played before – Roller Derby Leicester and Seaside Sirens Roller Girls.
Some of the 2015 game dates have been announced with a couple to be finalised so make sure you add these dates to your diary! Venues aren’t confirmed yet but we’ve mentioned the hosting teams to give you an idea on the location.

This year is going to be the toughest year yet for the Belles, who are very much the underdogs in the group. But we’ve come a long way in the past couple of years and we will be training hard to bring our best game.
See you on track 🙂 Hell Yeah Hell’s Belles!
