Founded in 1925, its heyday was in the 1970s under the name ASPO Tours, with two league titles in 1976 and 1980 and a European Cup Winners' Cup final in 1976.

After going through financial strife and successive reorganisations, Tours Métropole Basket is now the heir of the bankrupt club. As recently as the 2017–18 season, it had played in the fourth-tier Nationale 2, but earned promotion to Nationale 1 for 2018–19, and returned to the professional ranks by earning promotion to LNB Pro B for 2021–22.
