History[edit]

Basketball Club Valga was founded as a part of the Valga Sports Society Kalev (Estonian: Valga Spordiselts Kalev). Valga made their Korvpalli Meistriliiga (KML) debut in the 2006–07 season, having been promoted from the third tier II Liiga. Valga finished the 2006–07 regular season in 8th place and advanced to the playoffs. In the quarterfinals, the team faced off against the eventual champions TÜ/Rock and lost the series 0–2.

Valga finished the 2008–09 regular season in fourth place. In the playoffs, Valga first defeated Tallinna Kalev 3–2 in the quarterfinals in a best-of-five series. In the semifinals, Valga were swept by TÜ/Rock. In the third place games, the team faced off against TTÜ, but lost the series 0 games to 2, placing fourth in the final standings. Valga also made their Baltic Basketball League debut in the 2008–09 season, but failed to advance past the group stage of the Challenge Cup competition.

In 2015, it was announced Valga would join the Latvijas Basketbola Līga (LBL) for the 2015–16 season, thus becoming the first club to simultaneously compete in both, the Estonian and the Latvian League.[1] Valga finished the regular season in 6th place and advanced to the playoffs. The team faced VEF Rīga in the quarterfinals and lost three to nothing in a best-of-five series.[2]
