The Swiss women's national basketball team represents Switzerland in international basketball competitions for women.

Switzerland was one of the five founding members of the Eurosbaket in 1938, losing all four matches. In 1953 it also took part in the World Championship's inaugural edition. However, the 1956 Eurobasket marked its last appearance in a final stage to date.[1]

In the 2013 Eurobasket's qualification stage Switzerland will face Poland, Montenegro, Serbia and Estonia.[2]
