Overview

Team profile

Thailand

Thailand made their World Grand Prix debut in 2002 and have participated in all but the 2007 edition, when they hosted the World University Games. Their best World Grand Prix performance came in 2012 when they finished fourth and last year they finished 11th in Group 1. In 2013 they finished 13th but were able to celebrate victory in the Asian Championships for the second time after their 2009 success. They also triumphed at the 2012 Asian Cup and have 11 victories at the South East Asian Games, where they have taken gold in each of the last seven tournaments. At the 2014 World Championship they finished level-17th in their third appearance, first appearing in 1998. In addition, they have competed at the Grand Champions Cup twice and the World Cup once.

 
It is traditional for successful sports teams in Thailand to present a member of the country’s royal family with the spoils of their victories, and the women’s volleyball team uphold this ritual. In May 2014 they gave a 2013 Asian Championships gold medal to Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn. They had previously given her the gold they won in the competition in 2009 and they will be hoping to deliver more royal presents to the princess after their World Grand Prix campaign is finished this year.
