Iran's Women Basketball Team on a Promising Path

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The senior women's national basketball team of Iran is eyeing its way back onto the radar.

It will be an uphill battle towards promotion to Division A, but it is already on a promising path, FIBA reported.

Only last August, the women basketball team made history in securing its first medal by finishing third at the WABA Women's Championship in Amman, Jordan.

The men's national team program for Iran has already firmly planted themselves as one of the best in Asia. Now it's time for the women to rise, slowly and steadily with the help of Women's Super League.

"In Iran, we have five leagues for women, including the U-16, U-18, second Division, First Division, and the Super League. With this set in place, there is no surprise that women's basketball in Iran is slowly climbing and catching some attention.” Talin Tahmasian, head of competition and refereeing for IRIBF Women's Federation said.
