The Directors of NEBC Titans are delighted to announce the launch of the Northamptonshire Titans Foundation as a registered charity.
Following the merger of Wellingborough Phoenix (est. 1987) and Northampton Nets (est. 2008) in 2012, Northamptonshire Elite Basketball Club (NEBC Titans) has been running as a non-profit Club training players of all ages to play basketball at all levels from beginners to National League.
The Directors felt that it was time to take the next step and set up a charitable organisation to further promote the sport of basketball in the county. The aims of the new foundation are to promote sport and recreation in a safe environment without distinction of sex, sexual orientation, race, nor of political, religious or other opinions whilst promoting education, social inclusion, equality and diversity.
Given the events of 2020, with a pandemic and the increased focus on racial equality, the Trustees of the Titans Foundation are keen to promote what has been often referred to as the “Titans Family” and to better support basketball in the local community.
