History[edit]

Logo of the 60th anniversary.

The club was founded in 1948 by a group of students (the "Estudiantes") of a public preparatory school (the Instituto Ramiro de Maeztu, IRM) in Madrid.

By the time when the first Spanish-wide season-long championship was organized in 1955, by the Spanish Basketball Association (FEB), it was one of the six clubs participating in that tournament, as the second best team from the Province of Madrid (the first being Real Madrid. Since then, it has always participated in the premier Spanish basketball league. It is one of only three of such clubs, together with Real Madrid and Joventut. It is also one of two only Spanish basketball clubs with teams both at the top male and female Spanish championships.

In May 2012, Estudiantes was relegated for the first time in its history from the top tier of Spanish basketball, but remained in the league because LEB Oro champion CB 1939 Canarias didn't present the required documentation and money.[2]
