North Herts Knights is an established Basketball Club that has been running for well over 20 years.
Starting as a single Senior Mens team, it has grown year by year and is now the largest Community Basketball Club in Hertfordshire, and one of the largest in the entire country. The club now has over 150 active members who attend sessions weekly and this number is only continuing to grow each season.
After starting with just a single Senior Mens team this doubled to 2 teams in 2012 due to an increase in players. The teams are entered into Division 1 and 2 of the Herts Premier League and have been very successful, most notably in 2017-2018 where they combined to win 5 of the 6 trophies on offer across the HPL.
Alongside the success of our Senior Teams, the club’s Youth Programme has grown year on year. Starting out as a small community-based programme with 3 sessions a week across various age groups, the club now boasts 4 Competitive Youth Teams, as well as 4 Youth Community Sessions.
Our Youth Community Programme is the heart and soul of the club and has continued to get bigger and better each season, with now well over 75 members attending weekly sessions! Furthermore, our Youth Competitive Programme has improved astronomically in its short existence. Starting as just 1 Competitive U15 Team back in 2014-2015, there are now team at the U12, U14, U16 and U18 age groups competing each week. These teams continue to grow in strength each season, with the 2019-2020 season being our strongest in recent history, with our U12 and U14 Local League Teams both posting 2nd place finishes in their leagues, while the U16 and U18 National League Teams both racked up a record number of wins.
The club has also had player represent the county and be a part of the Basketball England Aspire Programme, with this number growing each year.
