Amateur Basketball news: 2007-2008 NF3 Champions Castelnau Basket

All the divisions below the LFB are amateur basketball leagues in France for women playing basketball. The NF designation stands for Nationale Féminine while for the men's league the designation used is NM.

We have given Nationale Féminine 1 its own page as we will be following this league during the season.

During the 2007-2008 season we started our coverage of Amateur Basketball (NF2) for the lower division by following Strasbourg IG (SIG)
as they were called then. They went on to complete the amateur grand slam and are now playing in NF1.

For this season we will give Nationale Féminine 2 (NF2) more coverage with brief reports from one of the four groups per week. If the clubs in the division provide us with more information then we will write some club reports.

We will also follow the progress of the LFB Espoir teams playing in the division.

Nationale Féminine 3 (NF3), the fourth division, is split into eight groups. For this season our main interest will be the LFB Espoir teams, however like last season we will follow the play-off.

The fifth division, known as Pré-nationale, is split into 24 regional divisions. We will follow some of the teams from around the region as they play in the French Amateur Cup.

You will be able to find detailed information about the various league structures by reading our page on the competition guide for the 2007-2008 season
