Representatives of the Nottingham McDonald’s Hoods and the Nottingham Wildcats Trust have recently met to discuss basketball development in Greater Nottingham.
Whilst this was seen as the first of a series of meetings bringing the organisations closer together to promote the benefits of basketball to the wider community and especially at grassroots level, agreement was reached in two key areas.
The two organisations have issued this joint statement: “It was a very productive first formal meeting and to agree on two areas of cooperation immediately is very encouraging. Both the Hoods and the Wildcats Trust will work together to support and promote the development of the Nottingham Academy basketball programme. Agreement was also reached on developing a coherent and comprehensive schools programme for the Greater Nottingham Area, ensuring the current talented crop of youngsters is added to and the next generation is given an opportunity”
Look out for future developments over the coming months.
