Hell’s Belles Roller Girls, has been awarded Team of the Year! The annual Welwyn Hatfield Sports Awards 2016 ceremony, was held at the Hawthorne Centre on Tuesday 8th March to celebrate inspirational sports teams, pupils and coaches in Welwyn Hatfield.
The award follows the team’s best competitive year to date in 2015. Strong leadership, top coaching and interminable team spirit saw the Belles finish local grouping undefeated to gain promotion to the next tournament tier for 2016 and climb the European roller derby rankings.
The League’s Chair, Emma Hart said “It was an honour for the team to be nominated against the other local teams in the category. This is an incredible achievement and it would not have been possible without the support of league members, friends, family, those that come along and cheer us on, the teams we play against that inspire us to do better, as well as fantastic leadership from Babs Winds’er who chaired the league last year.
I could not be more proud to a part of such an amazing and inspiring group of people. We have come so far in the past 18 months and I know we are going to continue growing and getting stronger.”
A huge thank you and lots of derby love to everyone that supported us in 2015 and beyond.
The Belles will start their 2016 British Championship battle on Saturday 12th March in Leicester, where they will be taking on the mighty Seaside Sirens. Every voice counts so come and cheer them on! See Facebook event for details.
