The Serbia women's national volleyball team is governed by the Volleyball Federation of Serbia and takes part in international volleyball competitions.

FIVB considers Serbia the inheritor of the records of SFR Yugoslavia (1948–1992) and Serbia and Montenegro (1992–2006).[citation needed]

The Olympic Committee of Serbia declared the women's national volleyball team the best female side of the year from 2006 to 2011.

Serbia earned a silver medal at the 2016 summer Olympics and won the 2018 FIVB Volleyball Women's World Championship.
