Poland have appeared in every edition of the FIVB World Grand Prix since 2004 reaching a high of sixth place in 2007 and 2010. In their bid for promotion from to Group 1, they made the final of Group 2 twice consecutively in 2015 and 2016, but lost on both counts to The Netherlands 3-0 and to the Dominican Republic 3-2.
The Poles were once one of the top teams in the world, however. They took Olympic bronze medals in Tokyo 1964 and Mexico City 1968. They won a World Championship silver in 1952 and bronze in 1956 and 1962. More recently they won back-to-back gold medals at the European Championships in 2003 and 2005, followed by a bronze in 2009. This is addition to four silver and another four bronze medals at continental level, mostly in the 1940s and 1950s. Poland returned to the Olympic stage for the first time in 40 years in Beijing 2008.
