EuroBasket Women 2023

The 39th European Women Basketball Championship (EuroBasket Women 2023) will be held in Ljubljana, Celje and Koper, Slovenia and Tel Aviv, Israel, from 15 to 25 June 2023. There will be teams from 16 countries taking part in the championship. Teams from Israel and Slovenia have received the right to participate as tournament hosts.

History of EuroBasket Women

Women’s basketball is as spectacular and popular as men’s. Senda Berenson, who invented and enforced basketball rules in the US for 70 years (prior to the 1980s), is considered the mother of women’s basketball.

The first official European women’s basketball championship was held in Rome in 1938. The Italian team became the first champions.

In 1976, women’s basketball was included in the Olympic program.

The USSR women’s national team won the European Championships 21 times (1950-1956, 1960-1991).
