Óbila Club de Basket was born in Ávila in 2001. It was founded by a group of amateur players willing to enjoy basket in this city. In 2003 the club started playing at Liga EBA for the first time and finished in the 12th position.

At the 2005–06 season the team finished in the third position and qualyfied for the promotion playoffs to the LEB 2 League but it was eliminated, as well as in the 2006–07 season, when it fihished the regular season in the second position.

In 2007 the Spanish Basketball Federation decided to create a third LEB with 18 teams named LEB Bronce and Óbila CB got a spot in this new division. In its first season LEB Bronce the club avoided the relegation to Liga EBA thanks to Dreike Bouldin, who is probably the best player in team history. After finishing the regular season as runner-up, the club promoted to LEB Plata by defeating the CB Tíjola in the playoffs. Dreike Bouldin won the MVP award and Paul Williams was named the third best player of the season.

Two years after promoting to LEB Plata, the club played its first promotion playoffs to LEB Oro, reaching the quarterfinals in 2010–11 and 2011–12.

Due to economic issues, in July 2012, the club decided not to take part in the 2012–13 LEB Plata season.[3] One week after this decision the club reached a sponsorship agreement with Grupo Eulen solving its economic problems and signed up for the 2012–13 LEB Plata season.
