Basketball fans try out new seating at Hemel Hempstead Leisure Centre

Hemel Storm basketball players and new seating for fans

New seating for Hemel Storm basketball fans was in use for the first time on Saturday (7 November 2019).

We've been working with Hemel Storm and Everyone Active to build new stands at Hemel Hempstead Leisure Centre where the award-winning team holds its home games.

The £112,000 investment in the new bleachers has now increased the crowd capacity for national league basketball games to 639. The seats were put to use for the first time at the Hemel Storm versus Loughborough Riders game - and it was victory for the home team.

Steve Cox, Area Contract Manager at Everyone Active, said: “We’re all delighted with the new stands. The increased capacity means more fans can attend the games and support their team. What’s more, Hemel Storm achieved an impressive 98-74 victory on Saturday - a great way to celebrate the investment.”
