At the 2015 African Volleyball Championship Tunisia finished with the silver medal after a straight sets defeat by hosts Egypt. They made their World League debut last season and this year finished bottom of Group 3’s Pool F with only one win, over Puerto Rico. In 2014 they competed at the World Championship and were ranked joint-21st overall after finishing bottom of a pool that included Brazil and Germany. Their World Cup performances have been consistent in recent outings, having finished 12th in 1995, 1999 and 2007. They improved slightly to finish 11th in 2003 but have failed to match their joint-best finishes of eighth in 1981 and 1991.
In 2013 Tunisia finished second at the Mediterranean Games, and the eight-time African champions have participated in six Olympic Games, with a best finish of ninth at Los Angeles 1984. At London 2012 they lost all five matches and won just one set. They have competed at every World Championship since 2002 but have recorded just three victories, all in 2006. At continental level, they have won a medal at each African Championship in which they have competed, apart from in 2009 when they finished fifth. In 2013 their youngsters posted an eighth-place finish at the World Under-23 Championship.
