History

The team was founded in 2002 as Pirita. Coached by Kalle Klandorf, the team joined the top-tier Korvpalli Meistriliiga (KML) in the 2002–03 season. Pirita reached the 2002 Estonian Cup final, but were defeated by TÜ/Rock 76–92.

In 2008, Pirita joined the multi-sport club Kalev. The team adopted the name Tallinna Kalev prior to the 2008–09 season. The team signed power forward Travis Reed for the 2009–10 season, while former Estonia national basketball team coach Üllar Kerde joined the coaching staff.

In 2010, the team merged with TTÜ, the latter becoming TTÜ/Kalev, while Tallinna Kalev became TTÜ/Kalev II. Both teams competed in the 2010–11 KML season and the 2010–11 Baltic Basketball League. The unified team dissolved after the 2010–11 season and both clubs continued separately.

Prior to the 2014–15 season, the team signed an agreement with Tallinn University and adopted the name TLÜ/Kalev.
