About Us | Basketball Store Newcastle upon Tyne UK

Hardwood Ventures was founded as an online store in 2011, with a mission to make it easier for players, clubs and schools to get access to all of the basketball clothing and equipment that they would need to play the game we love.

Since then, we've kept our core of supporting the performance side of the game, while branching out, and defining ourselves, by our commitment to the lifestyle side of things.

Basketball culture, design and iconography has filtered through into streetwear and fashion for decades, and is something that we're equally as passionate about.

In March 2015, we opened our very first retail store, in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, becoming the North East's (and perhaps the UK's) first ever 100% dedicated bricks and mortar basketball store.

In May 2017 we moved to a bigger and better store in Newcastle, on High Bridge Street, where we've been able to curate a space that fully reflects our attitude and love towards basketball. A true haven for any basketball fan who loves the sport as much as we do.

Basketball Reigns Supreme!
