WBBL Senior Women.

Nottingham Wildcats who along with Sheffield Hatters were founder members of the Women’s National League in 1976 have now, along with 8 other clubs, moved to the WBBL.  The WBBL is an initiative between the BBL, Basketball England and the top 10 women’s clubs in the country.  It is only in its second year and has already made a huge impact on the basketball scene in the UK.  Teams are stronger, the media coverage is up, crowds have increased and most of the games are more competitive. It is hoped that as the league progresses teams will become semi-professional and then fully professional.
