Welcome

When the Sheffield Hatters were formed in the early 1960’s they became the first women’s basketball team in England. Since then, the club has developed into the most successful women’s sports club in the country.

The Hatters provide sporting opportunities for players of all ages irrespective of ability or financial means. Over the years hundreds have trained and played for the club, becoming part of the ‘Hatters family’ in the process.

The club runs a strong junior development program with teams from under 10 up to under 18. More than this, we are a ‘community club’ our players and coaches coach regularly in many of Sheffield’s primary and secondary schools.
