Charleville-Mézières' women playing basketball
in the LFB in 2010-2011

The Charleville-Mézières’ club for women playing basketball, also known as "Flammes Carolo Basket", have finally got themselves out of the second division of women’s basketball in France after five years of trying.

Six core players from their championship season in NF1 have stayed to continue the adventure. They will be joined by Kristen Mann who played in the LFB before with Tarbes during the 2007-2008 season.

French youth international Eléonore Grossemy and 1.91m tall Serbian Bojana Vulic will complete the roster.
