Tunisia will be making their World League debut at the 2014 edition, and will be the sole African representatives in the competition. In 2013 they finished second at both the Mediterranean Games and African Championship, a defeat by Egypt denying them the gold medal in the latter competition.
The eight-time continental champions have participated in six Olympic Games, with a best finish of ninth-place in 1984 in Los Angeles. More recently, at London 2012 they lost all five matches, winning just one set. They have competed at every World Championship since 2002 but have recorded just three victories in matches, all three in their 2006 campaign. At a continental level, the team have won a medal at each African Championship they have competed in, apart from the 2009 edition when they finished fifth. In 2013 the next generation of Tunisian volleyball players posted a solid eighth-place finish at the 2013 World Under-23 Championship in Brazil.
