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:-
Barking Abbey Crusaders
Team Solent Kestrels
Thames Valley Cavaliers
Hoods Head Coach Ryan Westley simply commented, “Time to go to work!”
It was also confirmed that both Nottingham Hoods II and Nottingham Trent University Hoods will remain in Divison 4 Midlands, in a league of 11 teams.
