Club Joventut de Badalona, S.A.D. (Catalan pronunciation: [ˈklub ʒuβənˈtud bəðəˈlonə]), Divina Seguros Joventut for sponsorship reasons, is a Spanish professional basketball club based in Badalona, Spain, playing in the Asociación de Clubs de Baloncesto (ACB). Known to their fans as La Penya (in English, The Club), it is one of only three teams that have never been relegated from the top division of the Spanish League. The only other two are Real Madrid and Estudiantes. In 1994, Badalona was the champion of the FIBA European Champions' Cup, which is now called the EuroLeague.

Well-known players have included: Jordi Villacampa, Rafael Jofresa, Raül López, Rudy Fernández, and Ricky Rubio.

History

Badalona has had a basketball team since 30 March 1930, when Joventut was founded as Penya Spirit of Badalona. Apart from basketball, the club initially had teams involved in several sports including cycling, table tennis and football. In 1932, the club changed its name to Centre Esportiu Badaloní and in 1939, it became Club Joventut Badalona. By 1940, basketball was established as the club's main sport and green and black were adopted as the club's colours.

As one of the founding clubs of the Spanish league, Joventut became also one of the top teams in Spain since the 1950s, developing a great rivalry with Real Madrid and with the other neighbouring teams like FC Barcelona, playing memorable duels. Joventut won their first Spanish Cup in 1948 and their two first leagues in 1967 and 1978.

In 1981, Joventut started its golden era by winning their first European title: the FIBA Korać Cup in 1981, by defeating Carrera Venezia in the final played in Barcelona by 105–104. Joventut repeated title in 1990, this time beating Scavolini Pesaro in the double-legged final.

One year later, in 1991, Joventut achieved their third league, the first under the ACB and repated title in the following season, after losing the final of the European League against Partizan, that won thanks to a buzzerbeater of Sašha Djordjević. However, in 1994, Joventut won the title after winning the Final Four played in Tel Aviv against Olympiacos.

After two years of decline, Joventut clinched their seventh national cup and in the 2000s, started a new golden era with players like Rudy Fernández, and Ricky Rubio developed in the youth teams of the club. During their years at Badalona, Joventut won a FIBA Europe Cup in 2006, by beating Khimki in the final, a ULEB Cup in 2008, beating Akasvayu Girona in the finals,[1] and the eighth Copa del Rey, also in 2008.

Joventut Badalona is one of the only three teams, along with Estudiantes and Real Madrid, to have played every year in the top league.

In the 2017–18 season, Joventut was close of the dissolution, but the shareholders voted to save the club.[2] Finally, it could finish the season in the 15th season and avoided the relegation, despite ending in the worst position ever.
