Landstede Basketbal, also known as Landstede Zwolle, is a Dutch basketball organisation from Zwolle. The club currently plays in the Dutch Basketball League (DBL), the Dutch top tier division. The club was founded as Cees Lubbers The Hammers in 1995. In 1999, the club’s name was changed into Landstede Hammers. In 2001, the club received its current name Landstede Basketbal. The home games of the club are played in the Landstede Sportcentrum.

In its existence, Landstede has been the runner-up of the DBL three times. In 2017, the club captured its first trophy when it won the Dutch Supercup.


The club was founded as Cees Lubbers/The Hammers and was based in Meppel in the first season of the club. The club played with the license of Red Giants Meppel, and moved to Zwolle, partly because arena 'Het Vledder' in Meppel didn't meet requirements.[1] After a short time Landstede became the main sponsor of the club, that was named Landstede Hammers and later Landstede Basketbal. In the 2004–05 season Landstede reached the Dutch Finals for the first time in club history. It lost 4–0 to Amsterdam. In 2010 the club got a new arena in the Landstede Sportcentrum.

In 2017, Landstede won its first trophy in team history by winning the Dutch Supercup over Donar, winning 77–69.[2]
