We are Derby’s premier community based basketball club
We are the Derby Trailblazers Basketball Club, the biggest and most successful Basketball club in Derbyshire. Formed in July 2000, we now boast over 150 playing members with six junior teams, two ladies and girls teams, five men’s teams and an affiliated wheelchair team. Our family of volunteers are devoted to their respective teams and the entire club.
Teams from the club regularly win local, regional and national titles and many players from the team have won England representative honours.
Playing our home games at Noel-Baker School in Derby, we can attract crowds of more than 400 spectators on game nights. We also hope to play in the new multi-sport arena in Derby which seats thousands once it is completed in 2015. Our men’s first team have won many awards and trophies including the 2014 Division 2 Championship, 2014 Playoff Trophy and promotion back to Division 1.
The club has very strong links with many local schools, Derby College, the University of Derby and the Derbyshire Institute of Sport. This should result in the club becoming even stronger over the next few years. Our club also runs a community Basketball programme designed to introduce more young people to Basketball in different settings throughout the City.
Our history, hard work ethic, professionalism and fair play make us an attractive club to be part of... and our doors are open to all.
