HistoryEdit

The club was established in 1999 and its teams (girls, youth, junior and senior) started participating in local and regional competitions. After a restructure process in 2006, the club adopted a more professional oriented model that allowed the first team to move from regional to national competitions. It reached Serie D (in 2008), Serie C (in 2010), Serie B2 (in 2011) and Serie B1 (in 2013). The club won the 2015–16 Serie B1 promotion playoff and made its debut in the Serie A2 on the following season.[1][2]

VenueEdit

The club played its home matches at the PalaMillenium (in Bagnolo Mella) until 2017, when ahead of the 2017–18 season it moved to the PalaGeorge (in Montichiari), which has a 4,000 spectators capacity.[3]
