The club was founded in 1979 at Colegio Marista of Palencia, with the aim to support farm teams competing at provincial and regional tournaments.

The professional basketball team was created on 1997 and played during five years at Liga EBA before being invited to join the LEB Plata.

Two years later, the club achieved the promotion by finishing as champion of the 2015-16 LEB Oro season and the Copa Princesa de Asturias,[1] but resigned to promote due to the impossibility to fulfill the requirements.[2]
