Hucknall Junior Basketball Club

The aim of the club is to encourage and develop skills, fitness and a general enjoyment of the game of basketball.

The club was established in September 1999 with the support of Ashfield District Council. Grants from "The Lotteries Awards for All" and the "East Midlands Awards for All" enabled the Club to buy essential equipment, including portable baskets, and extend training of coaches and officials. Major fundraising initiatives have ensured the club's future through 2007 and 2008.

Membership has increased ten fold from the earliest sessions which had just six players. The success of the Club is shown in the standard of players it produces. A significant number of the youth team currently play for Notts Nova and Club members have represented at regional and national level.
