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).
