History[edit]

Sabiha Gürayman was the first Turkish woman to engage in the game of volleyball which was introduced in Turkey in the 1910s. Gürayman, as a young woman, played for the Fenerbahçe men's volleyball team. Turkish women volleyball has undergone a rapid transformation since the 2000s achieving many successes at both club and national level, causing a massive impact in Turkish society. As a result, women volleyball is one of the best followed sports in Turkey.
