HistoryEdit

The club was created in 1967 and made its way from regional tournaments during the 1970s to the national leagues in the 1980s and 1990s. It reached the Serie A1 (highest Italian league) in 2003.[1] Home games took place at the PalaCampanara and success soon followed, with the club winning its first major title, the CEV Challenge Cup in 2005–06. Since then, three successive Serie A1 titles, one Italian Cup, four Italian Supercups and a CEV Cup title were added in just four years.[1][2] The club also played in five editions of the CEV Women's Champions League.[3]

In 2013 the club withdrew from the Serie A1 and along with Snoopy Pallavolo (another volleyball club from Pesaro) started a project called Volley Pesaro which apart from the professional level has also the goal of focusing on youth players.[4]

In 2017 the club returned to the Serie A1, after winning the promotion playoffs of the 2016–17 Serie A2.[5]
