Biography

A member of the Czech Basketball Hall of Fame, Zdeněk Bobrovský had a long active career, both as a player and a coach. He played most of his years for Brno clubs, Slavia (1952-54), Zbrojovka/Spartak (1950-51, 1955-68), but closed out his career in Austria for WSG Radenthein. During that period, he won championships with both Czech clubs (1951, 1952-53, 1955, 1957, 1960, 1962-64, 1967-68), nine in total, and placing 2nd six times in Czechoslovakia and once in Austria. He reached the final of the European Champions Cup twice (1964, 1968) with Zbrojovka, but lost on both occasions. In international competition, he first represented his nation at the 1951 European Championships, winning silver. He repeated that performance in 1954, adding a bronze in 1957. In all, he played 109 matches, participating in two Olympic Games (1952 and 1960). At Zbrojovka, he played together with his younger brother [Jan Bobrovský], who would go on to compete in the 1972 Games. By then, Zdeněk had turned to coaching. For seven seasons, he coached the women's team of KPS Brno, doing well but never winning the title. From 1981-88 he coached his old squad, Zbrojovka, leading them to three consecutive titles in 1986-88.
