Team profile

The year 2009 turned out to be a golden year for the Thailand Women’s National Team, coinciding nicely with celebrations feting 50 years of Volleyball in the country.

The miracle happened in Hanoi, Vietnam when the Thai team was crowned continental champions for the first time when they won the 15th Asian Women’s Volleyball Championship.

And for the first time the team participated in the FIVB World Grand Champions Cup.

Thailand first exhibited hints of its current level of success in 2007, when it beat Korea, Kazakhstan and Chinese Taipei at the 14th Asian Women’s Volleyball Championship in September that year to claim third place behind China and eventual winners Japan.

And in their first appearance at a World Cup, the team finished in 10th place with a credible two wins at the 2007 tournament in Japan.

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

Another highlight for the team was its fourth-place finish at the 2006 Asian Games in Doha, Qatar.

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

Thailand is currently focused on preparation for the 2010 World Championship, 2011 World Cup and 2012 London Olympics.

Coach profile

Kiattipong Radchatagriengkai, a national ace spiker turned coach, has brought fame and reputation to the Thailand Volleyball Association and its Women's National Team in particular.

Radchatagriengkai spearheaded the Thai Men's National Team to a well-earned title at the 1995 South East Asian Games in Chiang Mai, a northern province of Thailand.

Two years later, Thailand hosted the FIVB Girls' Youth World Championship in the same province. The 43-year-old Radchatagriengkai played a vital role in coaching the Thai girls' team to an unprecedented fifth place, a remarkable success in what turned out to be a golden era for girls' Volleyball in Thailand.

Radchatagriengkai later became the head coach of Thailand's Women's National Team. In 1998, the team made history by qualifying for the first time for the FIVB Women's World Championship in Japan. Radchatagriengkai steered the team to 15th place at the world meet.

Under his guidance, Thailand qualified again for the 2002 World Championship Finals in Germany. This time, they finished 20th among the world's top 24 teams.

Under the close supervision of the devoted Radchatagriengkai, the Thai Women's Team also performed superbly to book a berth at the 2010 FIVB Women's World Championship in Tokyo, Japan.

Radchatagriengkai led the team to the eighth place in their World Grand Prix debut in 2002. Last year, he took charge as team manager and piloted the team to 11th place at the premier annual women's competition.

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 Senior Women’s Volleyball Championship in Hanoi, Vietnam in 2009. That win earned the team a spot in the coveted FIVB World Grand Champions Cup.

Despite a daunting task ahead, Radchatagriengkai is very determined to get the Thai team off to a strong start en route to the 2010 World Championship, the 2011 World Cup and the 2012 London Olympic Games.
