After being admitted to the Women’s British Basketball League in 2014 the Nottingham Wildcats franchise has since become a leading side at the top national level of basketball in England.

The development of the Jesse Boot Wildcats Arena in 2001 paved the way for first class basketball facilities in Nottingham and with that became a first class women’s team that is now regularly competing at the upper echelon of the British game.

In its debut season (20014/15) in the WBBL, Nottingham Wildcats came second in the Championship and finished as runners up in the Trophy before back to back league season titles in 2016 and 2017 where they also reached the final of the cup.
