Keep an eye on the website for dates when the training will start again. Thanks again and I hope he enjoys himself.

      1. Simon Goulbourm

    Hi my son Joseph is in year 5 at school aged 9 and wants to start playing basketball. Could you please let me know of any clubs around nottingham that he could attend. Thanking you.

    1. lordair7

      Hello and thank you for contacting the Hoods. The junior training is off at the moment due to Easter holidays etc, but we aim to have a few more sessions before the summer break, as well as some camps etc over the summer. The best bet is to email GM Lee English on leeenglish1980@gmail.com who will be able to assist further.

      Thanks again and I hope Joseph enjoys it

  19. Andrea

    Hi there, My boy is 10 and loves basketball, will the Junior Hood’s not now start until September?

Thank you for contacting the Hoods and I hope your son enjoys it

    From the above messages it looks like my son could just come down to Beckett School on Sept 9 for a taster session. Is that correct? He has played basketball at school. Does he need to be a certain standard to join?

    1. lordair7

      That is correct, he is welcome to just turn up and play. There is no minimum standard, we want to get kids of all ages and abilities into basketball and The Hoods.

    Many thanks

    1. lordair7


      There is no formal registration process involved for the Junior Hoods, your son is welcome to just turn up and play when we start back on Monday 9th September.

  29. Heidi

    I just wanted some information on our junior basketball clubs. My son is interested but he is only 7. I wondered if there is an age they need to be before they start as so far I am struggling to find somewhere that will take them that young

    Many thanks

    1. lordair7


      Your son is welcome to join us at The Becket School, West Bridgford on Monday evenings between 6 and 7pm. The cost of each session is £3 and it starts back on Monday 9th Spetember. I hope he enjoys it and we look forward to welcoming him into the Hoods family.
