NTU Men’s Basketball is one of the largest and most highly respected clubs at Nottingham Trent University, 160 trialists last year competed for spots on our three teams of between 12 and 15 players, unbelievable talent across all teams who pride themselves in being pink.
We now have three men’s teams, for the first year ever.
We're going from strength to strength, with Notts Varsity Wins 2016, 2017 an 2018 and a Men’s First Bucs cup champs 2017/18, Men’s 2nd 2016/17 champions of midlands 4A and Promotion to midlands 3A.
Our Varsity fixture takes place in the motorpoint arena in front of a huge crowd, the atmosphere is amazing.
We have a strong partnership and connection with Nottingham Hoods Basketball Club, and strong links to other smaller local league clubs around the city. We created our trent hoods national league side this past season, which enabled a link and strong bridge between trent and hoods.
As well as the competitive stuff, there is social basketball available to be played across NTU at both Clifton and city where club players can mix and play people who would rather play for fun and create friendships across the university.
