Team profile

The Polish women’s team was founded in 1947 and began recording significant achievements throughout the 1950s and 1960s, including two Olympic bronze medals in Tokyo 1964 and Mexico 1968. The next three decades, however, were not so successful but a sudden and very welcome change occurred in 2003.

Coach Ryszard Andrzej Niemczyk returned after a 26- year absence and immediately pulled off a huge surprise by winning gold at the 2003 European Championships. This was followed by an eighth-place finish at that year’s World Cup. In 2005 the side defended its European crown before finishing a disappointing 15th in the 2006 FIVB World Championship. Niemczyk then retired and was succeeded by Marco Bonitta.

The new coach began well, earning fourth place at the European Championships and qualifying for the Olympic Games in 2008 for the first time in 30 years. In 2009, with a newly appointed coach in Jerzy Matlak, the side picked up a 2009 European Championship bronze medal before finishing sixth at the 2010 FIVB World Grand Prix.
Coach profile

Jerzy Matlak joined the Poland coaching staff in 2009, following various stints with the side at numerous times throughout the 1980s.

He has a total of 35 years of experience, winning 18 Polish Championship medals and nine Polish Cup medals, averaging 50 games per season predominantly at club level, making him one of the most experienced coaches at the World Championship.
