History
View history
Basketball in the Netherlands is a sport on the rise, particularly with girls and women.


The growing enthusiasm for the game is there for all to see, with more and more people taking to courts across the country.
 

The passion for basketball is also reflected in the country's continued improving performances in international competitions.
 

In 2011, the Dutch women's national teams all finished inside the top 10 at the three (U16, U18, U20) youth European Championships.
 

In light of that, the timing could not be better to hold the second FIBA U17 World Championship for Women in Amsterdam.
 

The Dutch capital and the host nation will welcome the reigning world champions from the USA and 10 teams from all corners of the globe, who would like nothing better than to get their hands on the winners' trophy.
 

Two years ago, the Americans went undefeated and unopposed as they claimed gold in Toulouse, France. They were joined on the podium by the host nation and by China.
 

This August, the fans can expect to be in for a real treat at the 2012 FIBA U17 World Championship for Women.
 

The tournament is sure to be action-packed, with all 12 teams competing at the highest level and the stars of tomorrow will begin to shine.
