The Nottingham basketball community has lost one of its great as Pauline Prior sadly passed away on Friday.
A founding member of the Nottingham Wildcats, Pauline played for the club for 16 seasons as an exceptional playmaker and pioneer for the game. Pauling always played the game as it should be, with passion and commitment, seeing here earn international honours at u17 and u19.
After hanging up her boots, Pauline went on to be a Team Manager of England as well as coaching countless future stars of the game with the Wildcats and setting up the Wildcats’ Miniballers Programme before, not least of all, assisting with raising the funds for the exceptional Wildcats’ Arena.
Pauline will be missed not just in Nottingham , but in the wider basketball community as a whole.
To Chris, Siobhan and all Pauline’s family, the Hoods send their heartfelt best wishes.
Rest in Peace Pauline and God Bless.
