Administrative history
  • ┆Leicester Riders was founded on April 26th 1967 and is the oldest professional club in British basketball. Originally known as the Loughborough All-Stars, after the closure of Granby Halls, the club were forced to leave Leicester in the summer of 2000, taking up residence at Loughborough University for their home games. In the summer of 2004 following an arrangement with DMU they returned to Leicester and the John Sandford Sports Centre became the club’s new home venue from September onwards. 2012/13 has proved the most successful season to date with the team winning both the BBL championship title and the BBL playoff final at the Wembley arena. Additionally, coach Rob Paternostro was named BBL coach of the year, the same year.
