FIVB considers Serbia the inheritor of the records of SFR Yugoslavia (1948–1991) 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.
