Division 1 Basketball is coming to Nottingham

The Basketball England Senior League structure was announced today and confirmed, the Nottingham Hoods will be playing Division 1 basketball for the 2018/19 season.

Having won the Division 2 league title in 2017/18, the Nottingham Hoods applied for and were accepted into Division 1, the highest division in England and a huge challenge for the club, still in it’s relative infancy at just 9 years old.

NBL Division One will contain 14 teams, with play-off Champions, Thames Valley Cavaliers, joining Hoods in earning promotion:-
