We know it's a while away but it's still exciting! For the first time ever we'll be face to face with the undisputed north eastern ferocious Middlesbrough Milk Rollers in a full bout.

This time it's just one on one, there's gonna be a lot of blood, sweat and tears though this bout and you'd better be there, right on the edge of your seat for this bout.

What a scorcher of a day for both teams, with four lead changes this bout was anyone’s game. The Harlots started out strong holding our jammers back, but after a couple of jams, the Hotties regrouped and refocused bringing us into the lead where we held it until close to the end of the first half. A few power jams to the Harlots and then they were lead.
The second half was a nail biter, scores were close and lead switched a few more times but with power jams against the Harlots, the Hotties took advantage of this and just kept going until the final whistle! Final score Harlots 138 Hot Wheel 170!
Thank you to all those who came to support and thank you to the Hellfire Harlots for hosting an amazing day.
It's been away since we travelled far far away to play...This time we travelled over to our friendly Irish neighbours to bout Dublin Roller Derby. The Hotties always get excited when we get to go play away games because sometimes we leave the country to play roller derby!
Tremendous weekend of travelling, meeting new skaters, a couple of our Hotties even debuted their first ever bout in the warm up bout. That aside our A Team Hotties were there to play a tough bout against Dublin Roller Derby - OH MY GOSH, this was a tough bout! TWO LEAD CHANGES - we were up during this first half but DRD bagged themselves a few good power jams pushing them up by the half time whistle putting the scores at HW 72 and DRD at 76. Time for the hotties to change game play - taking the line up front rather than the back we got our heads together and with a few more power jams BOOM! We were in the lead, with DRD jammer sent to the penalty box Ruthless Philly took advantage and went round and round and round until the final whistle went. Final scores were Hot Wheel 169 to Dublin 146!
We'd like to thank Dublin Roller Derby for hosting an amazing event, weekend and we hope see you next year for a rematch.
This Saturday promises to be a blinder - 3 amazing teams in 2 incredible bouts. If you've never seen roller derby before, this promises to be a great taster, and for those veteran fans...

Hot Wheel Roller Derby host double-header!
Action-packed Saturday at Leeds University!
Leeds side Hot Wheel Roller Derby is hosting teams from Cardiff and Middlesbrough on Saturday (11 October 2014) for an action-packed afternoon of all-female flat track roller derby.
Tiger Bay Brawlers from Cardiff will play Middlesbrough Milk Rollers before going on to take on Hot Wheel at The Edge, Leeds University, LS2 9JT. Doors open at 1pm with the first whistle at 1.30pm.
Vice Captain Hayley ‘Peggy Leethal’ Lambert (pictured left, second from left) said: "Roller derby is a full contact sport on roller skates. There are five skaters from each team on track at any one time; four blockers and a jammer. The jammer scores by passing the opposing blockers. It's pretty fast paced with some big hits, so it's very exciting to watch.
“Middlesborough and Tiger Bay are two of the best teams in the country, and we're very proud and excited to be holding this event. Hot Wheel has never had the chance to play Tiger Bay in a public bout before and we are all looking forward to playing some high level roller derby.
“If you’ve never been before, come along and see what it’s all about and, if you fancy it, we’ll even get you signed up to join us! Just come and say hi. Joining Hot Wheel is the best thing that I ever did.”
Hot Wheel is always keen to welcome new skaters, the only criteria being that you’re over 18. You don’t need to have any previous skating experience, and we can even loan you the kit to get started.

Manager of Fab Cafe, Leeds James Pretty said: “We’re very excited to be sponsoring such an upcoming and talented local team. Hot Wheel has been steadily climbing the ranks in the roller derby world and is now in the top 20 of European sides. It's a no-brainier that we would sponsor these girls. We know they'll do us proud."
On the sponsorship, Peggy Leethal added: “We are really pleased to have the recognition of a sponsor, the new gold helmets from Fab Cafe look great and we can't wait to show them off for the first time.”
