In the title compound, [Cu2(C2H4NO2)2(C10H6O6S2)(H2O)6], the naphthalenedisulfonate group lies on a center of inversion and bridges two glycinate-chelated CuII atoms. The CuII atom exists in a CuNO4 square-pyramidal geometry that is distorted towards an octahedron owing to a long Cu—Osulfonate bond [2.636 (2) Å]. In the crystal, extensive N—H⋯O and O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds link adjacent molecules into a three-dimensional network
