The Netherlands women's national volleyball team is the national volleyball team of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. It is governed by the Nederlandse Volleyball Bond (NeVoBo). Following the 1995 European Championship they hosted in Arnhem and finishing fifth at the 1996 Olympics, the Dutch have had moments of success amidst instability, such as the title of the 2007 FIVB World Grand Prix,[1] and a return to the Olympic Games in 2016, where the Netherlands got to fourth place.[2]
