Who Are We

Established in 1976, the Nottingham Wildcats Women's Basketball Club has since become a prominent contributor to women's basketball in the UK. The club runs a basketball programme starting at Mini-ballers, where girls and boys aged from 6 - 14 are introduced to basketball. After Mini-ballers, the club runs the following  junior sides U14, U16 and U18 and then the women's elite basketball side that play in the WBBL (Women's British Basketball League). Success has followed the club since joining the WBBL having won twice won the WBBL Championship (2015/16, 206/17) and WBBL Cup (2017/18) while having more players represent English basketball at international level than any other basketball club.

The club became a charitable trust in December 2000 and a year later opened the Nottingham Wildcats Arena which it still calls home to this day.  Opening the arena saw the Nottingham Wildcats Community Basketball and Sports Trust move from being a club that solely played and trained, to an organisation that is firmly embedded in the fabric of the local community.

Even though the Trust predominantly supports girls and women to engage in basketball, it also provides a low-cost and affordable indoor sports and leisure facility primarily for the local community on the disadvantaged East side of the City of Nottingham.

Our mission statement is: 'Through our programmes we aim to make a positive difference to the community we serve and improve the life chances of young people we engage with’.

The underlying principle of the Trust is a 'family first' mentality where everybody is encouraged to help and support each other. This is particularly evident in the number of ex mini-ballers from our mini-ballers programme coming back to coach the next generation of Wildcats.

What We Need

Like many similar organisations, Covid -19 has had a negative impact on the ability to provide a basketball provision; and lockdown meant that the 2019/20 WBBL season was cancelled along with all junior basketball.  This not only took basketball away form the community but also had a significant financial impact on the club, impacting on the ability to run several community initiatives.

Your support, whether it's a small donation, purchasing a T-shirt or taking a sponsorship package out will help the Nottingham Wildcats continue to participate at the top level of elite basketball, but just as importantly, assist in the development of women's basketball and ensure that the basketball programme continues to enrich the lives of women and young adults within the Nottinghamshire region.

Activities such as coaching clinics, junior basketball programmes, school visits and providing good quality basketball equipment will be provided with your support.

Our club will undertake several activities to fundraise that will be advertised through our social media.
