Women playing basketball in France is serious business
Women playing Basketball in France - Basket and the city 4
During the 2007-2008 season we ran a series of interviews on playing basketball in France under the title of women basketball players.
We have decided to continue the series for this season and also ask foreign players about their experience in playing basketball in France.
The merger of Saint Amand-les-Eaux and USVO at the end of the season 2007-2008 is just one illustration how basketball has changed in France.
With over twenty-four thousand women (18+) playing basketball under the governance of the French Basketball Federation (FFBB), the 140 players in the LFB are all stars as they have reached the ultimate goal of so many.
The players from abroad have challenges of their own when coming to play in France. During the season we will be sharing their thoughts on this page with audio interviews.
