The Hallam Hellcats will play their final game of the 2024 championship season against Dundee Rebellion Roller Derby.

The match on Saturday 11 May will take place at their home training groundSkate Central, on Queens Road.

Team Captain, Chelsea Abbott, said: “The crowd at our home games has previously been wonderful, we aim to bring a skilful and entertaining game to Sheffield and an awareness of female contact sports right here in the city.”

“It allows for more people to discover us and shows just what women in sport can do.”

The Five Nations Roller Derby Championships, founded in 2015, is one of Europe’s largest interleague tournaments.

Over 50 leagues from England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland enter annually and are divided into two tiers with matches spanning across the whole year.

The Hellcats won their first game against the Wiltshire Roller Derby, who Dundee will also be playing on Saturday.

Miss Abbott, nicknamed ‘Abattoir’, said: “Dundee are old track acquaintances having played them back in 2016, it was definitely time for a rematch!”

“Dundee are a strong team, who although are playing two games, there’s no assumption they will be an easy opponent and we will have to keep our heads firmly in the game at all times, hopefully securing a second win under our belts.”

The Hellcat’s second game was against the Newcastle Canny Belters which they lost 238-54, their biggest defeat in over five years.

Miss Abbot, 36, said: “They well and truly belted us, they played incredibly strong and tactically to not allow us to score at all. They really deserve their number one spot this season.”

The Hallam Hellcats, founded in 2012, is a ‘close-knit’ team of women and non-binary individuals who have a ‘real sense of community’ ingrained in their team values.

When asked about the roller derby community in Sheffield, Miss Abbott said:

“Sheffield has many sports venues yet for grass root sports such as roller derby, the city does price out many options available and across the UK this has led to roller derby teams folding due to rising costs.”
