Overview

Team profile

Poland

Poland have appeared in every edition of the FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix since 2004. They finished second in Group 2 last season after finishing fourth the year before. That followed a 15th-place finish in 2013, some way off their most successful finishes of sixth in 2007 and 2010.

The Polish team did not qualify for the 2014 FIVB Volleyball Women's World Championship. The Poles were once one of the top teams in the world, however. They were founded in 1947 and took Olympic bronze medals in 1964 and 1968. They won a World Championship silver in 1952 and bronze in 1956 and 1962.

Poland have cracked the top eight in several tournaments in recent times but are still working on consistency. They have won gold medals twice since 2000. The first was at the 2003 European Championship in Turkey when they beat the hosts in straight sets. They defended the title two years later and also took bronze in 2009 on home soil.

Poland returned to the Olympic stage for the first time in 40 years in 2008 and rallied to qualify for the London 2012 Games. In 2015 they competed in the first European Games in Baku, Azerbaijan ending second and retaining hope of reviving Polish women's volleyball.

Nawrocki Jacek

Nawrocki Jacek

In April 2015 Jacek Nawrocki was chosen over several foreign applicants to lead his native country’s women’s team. Nowrocki, whose background as a coach is based on working with men’s teams, said he was confident he could make the transition to the women’s game quickly.

After retiring as a player in 2001, Nawrocki coached Polish men’s club PGE Skra Belchatow. They won two national championships, two Polish Cups, a silver medal and a bronze in the CEV Volleyball Champions League, and two silvers and a bronze at FIVB Volleyball Club World Championships. In his first season with the Polish women, he helped the team to silver medals at the 1st European Games in Baku, kick-starting an effort to rebuild a team which will revive Polish women's volleyball.
