Team profile

The Thai team had a golden year in 2009, coinciding nicely with the 50th anniversary of volleyball in the country. 

A miracle happened in Hanoi when the Thais were crowned continental champions for the first time at the 15th Asian Women’s Volleyball Championship. 

Thailand first showed signs of their potential in 2007 when they beat Korea, Kazakhstan and Chinese Taipei at the 14th Asian Women’s Volleyball Championship to place third behind China and winners Japan. 

In their first appearance at a World Cup, they finished 10th with a creditable two wins at the 2007 tournament in Japan. 

Thailand finished third at the 2001 Asian Women’s Volleyball Championship, beating Japan on the way, before debuting at the FIVB World Grand Prix in 2002. Since then, they have appeared every year except 2007.

Another highlight for the team was their 13th-place finish at the 2010 Women's World Championship in Japan. 

The Thailand women's team was founded in 1979 under an FIVB development plan called "The 2001 National Team Project." 

Thailand is currently focused on preparing for the 2011 World Cup and 2012 London Olympics.

Coach profile

Kiattipong Radchatagriengkai, a national ace spiker turned coach, has brought fame and a growing reputation to the Thailand women's team. In 1998, the team made history by qualifying for the World Championship for the first time, finishing in 15th place. The Thai women also performed superbly to book a berth at the 2010 World Championship. The coach underlined his credentials even more when he helped guide the team to their first continental crown, beating 11-time champions China in the final of the 15th Asian Championship in Hanoi in 2009. That win earned the team a spot in the FIVB World Grand Champions Cup.
