The Women's Philippine Basketball League was a women's basketball league in the Philippines. It was originally formed in 1998 as the women's counterpart to the Philippine Basketball League. The league went on hiatus from 2000 until it was revived in 2008. The revived league was expected to start-up on November 9, 2008, and ran alongside the PBL tournaments. It was open to all Filipino women basketball players 25 years old and below. However, the league quickly folded after that season.

The league was sanctioned by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas, the country's national basketball federation. [1][2][3][4][5]

The WPBL held its last tournament in 1999 when the Ever Bilena team of Dioceldo Sy dominated the league for two seasons.
