The Paris Basketball project

July 2018. At the Paris City Hall, David Kahn, co-owner of the club with Eric Schwartz, announces the official creation of Paris Basketball in the company of Anne Hidalgo, Mayor of Paris.

Our origins


Beyond the club, the creation of Paris Basketball is a project that embodies a culture: that of Parisian basketball.


A culture that has been built on the fringes of the professional championship and official circuits.


On the playgrounds from Pigalle to Bir Hakeim, in the gyms of Paris to Cergy, in the amateur clubs of Greater Paris and during the summer tournaments at Carpentier or Trocadero, this culture has made Paris one of the basketball capitals of the world.

It is this energy and those who make it that carry Paris Basketball within a territory, the Greater Paris, which has the largest number of members in France and from which champions come.

The Club


In its first three seasons from 2018 to 2021, Paris Basketball played in the PRO B championship (second men’s professional division). In 2021, after a run of 10 wins out of 11, the club finished second in the championship and earned its ticket to join the Elite of French basketball, where it has been playing ever since.


With its young squad, Paris Basketball aims to become one of the best clubs in France and Europe in the medium term.


Following its promotion to Betclic ELITE at the end of the 20-21 season, the club has also been competing on the European stage in the 7DAYS EuroCup since the 22-23 season. The team is coached by Tuomas IISALO for the 2023/2024 season. He succeeds Will WEAVER, who took the club to the EuroCup quarter-finals in the 2022/2023 season.

Our ambition


The club’s ambition is to offer a spectacle on and off the pitch, with themed matches celebrating Parisian communities: Africa Game, Chinese New Year, Green Game.


The club is in its third season in the Elite, with an ultra-competitive squad of talented youngsters led by Finnish coach Tuomas Iisalo.

In 2023/2024, the objective is clear:

Continue the club’s development and compete in the playoffs for the first time in our history in the Betclic ELITE and reach the summit of the EuroCup.
