Baloncesto Rivas CDE, commonly known as Rivas Ecópolis due to sponsorship reasons, is a Spanish professional women's basketball team based in Rivas-Vaciamadrid, Madrid. The team currently plays in the Spanish Women's League. It was founded in 1988 as CD Covíbar but the women's basketball team didn't play until 1993.

Rivas first played in the top category in 2004, but it couldn't avoid relegation. However the team was back for the 2007 season and rose into the championship's top places, attaining 3rd (2009, 2010) and 4th (2011) spots. These results earned Rivas qualification for the Euroleague, where it reached the Round of 16 in 2010 and 2011. In 2011 it won the Copa de la Reina, its first national title.

In 2012, Rivas achieved a berth to the Euroleague Women Final Eight at Istanbul.
