Who are the Nottingham Wolves?
The Nottingham Wolves club (formerly known as Arnold Wolves) were formed in 1993 and have seen the same highs and lows. However, the advent of social media enables the sport to grow and the Wolves along with it. The Wolves have grown over the years from a small band of die-hard players to a club of approximately 70 senior players and 30 junior players, which are still increasing in numbers to this day.
Awards have flowed in the last ten years. Highlights have been the club becoming national champions in 2011 and 2013 (while also being runner-up in 2010, 2012 and 2014). In addition, the club has seen many of its players (up to 30 at the last count) represent Great Britain at various levels, from under 14 up to senior men's and ladies. The Wolves are always recruiting players and offer a place to play for anyone interested in playing the sport, from those who have already played at a high level, to those who are beginners. If you are interested, do not be afraid to get in touch with the club using our CONTACT US page.
What is Ball Hockey?
Ball Hockey is a close relation of ice hockey and roller hockey. Played on foot, instead of skates and with an orange plastic ball, the sport can be played in roller rinks, sports halls or various other sporting venues. Team and squad size can be easily varied to suit the area you’re playing in. Internationally the sport is governed by the International Street and Ball Hockey Federation (ISBHF). Ball hockey has a long tradition in the Nottingham area.
Dating back to mid-eighties the game was played in two separate leagues (Portland and Northside), where at it’s height there were as many as 20 separate clubs. Since then the sport has seen several ups and downs in it’s fortunes with the sport almost dying out in the early nineties and then again in the late nineties.
Where do we train?
We are currently located at both, Southglade Leisure Centre and Ellis Guilford, Nottingham. However we do have plans behind the works so please keep an eye out on our social medias for more information and updates.
