Mens National League Basketball will be returning to Hull next season after England Basketball confirmed the new Wasps team have been accepted into Division 4 North.

After reaching an agreement on the venue a few weeks ago, along with our ever expanding youth programme, the teams application didn't take long for England Basketball to make a decision.

Neil Kelsey, Chairman of the Hull Basketball Club said: "We are extremely pleased to finally have it confirmed that Hull will have a senior mens team competing at National Level next year. We hope the teams success will help us to climb up the National League tables soon and bring great success to the people of Hull".

Now that the Wasps will be starting in the league in September, all home games will be played at the Gemtec Arena, at the KC Stadium complex. Fixtures will be released in a few months so keep an eye on the site for further information.
