Olympiacos women's volleyball is the women's volleyball department (founded in 1930) of the Greek multi-sport club Olympiacos. They play their games at the 3,000-seat Melina Mercouri Hall in Piraeus.

In the 2013 A1 finals, Olympiacos defeated AEK Athens, with 3 wins and 2 losses, thereby winning the Greek Championship for the first time in their history.[1] AEK started the finals with a 2–0 lead (due to the final standings of the regular season), but Olympiacos managed to win three consecutive games (two of them being away games) to secure the title.

Olympiacos has also won four Greek Cups –in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014– and two Doubles in 2013 and 2014.[2][3][4] In European competitions, the department reached the quarter-finals of the Challenge Cup in season 2007–08.[5]
