The ASSOCIATION BASKETBALL MERIDA was founded in 1994 in order to accommodate a large number of boys and girls who wanted to continue practicing basketball after the disappearance of other clubs in the city. In its first season, the senior men’s team played in the 3rd Division, in which it was brilliantly champion without losing a single match in the whole competition and thus getting the promotion to the 2nd National Division where he played until the 1999/2000 season getting several league championships and go to the phases of promotion to the EBA League of Santa Cruz de La Palma (Canary Islands), Linares (Andalusia) and Paterna (Valencia) where the promotion was finally achieved.
Since then, the team has gone through the name of Mérida nationally in the EBA League thanks to the support of the institutions ( Mérida City Council, Junta de Extremadura and the Provincial Council of Badajoz ), our sponsor PROVIEX 51 and many other companies collaborators and of course of the hobby that has returned emeritense after many years of ostracism. Equally in the short history of our club have achieved important achievements at the quarry level as a regional championship of male cadets, two runners-up of male youth and a runner-up female cadet.
Also since the 96/97 season until the present our club signed a collaboration agreement with the Hon. City of Mérida through which we manage all the Municipal Basketball Schools, where 300 boys and girls practice basketball from 5 to 14 years of age in addition to the competition teams federated in base categories with which we also count as Municipal Schools, representing our club in all categories both male and female.
