Formed in 2009 and based out of the Nottingham Wildcats Arena which is operated by the Jesse Boot Wildcats Community Basketball and Sports Community Trust, the Nottingham Hoods have made huge strides in recent years climbing the leagues to currently participate in the second tier of mens basketball in this country.

Starting out in Division 4 of the Midland League finishing second and winning the playoffs in year one ‘The Hoods’ played five years in Division Three North before restructuring of the leagues gave the side a birth in the second division of the National Basketball League finishing fifth and reaching the semi-finals of the playoffs in 2016.

In their second season of the NBL2 they finished 6th and reached the Quarter Finals of the playoffs before winning the division in 2018 losing to Thames Valley Cavaliers by just three points in the Playoff final. That success however secured promotion again and in 2018 the club participated in their first year in Division One of the NBL.
