Personal life[edit]

Zbigniew Bartman was born in Warszawa, Poland to parents Leon and Jadwiga Bartman. His father is schoolmaster of SMS PZPS Spała. He has an older sister, Katarzyna (born 1979). On July 11, 2015 he married to Joanna Michalska, a former Polish pole vaulter.

Before his career as an indoor volleyball player, Bartman played beach volleyball with Michał Kubiak. They won a gold medal at the European U-18 Championship in 2004 and a silver medal at the World U-18 Championship,[1] also in 2004. Both Kubiak and Bartman gave up playing beach volleyball.


Bartman debuted in PlusLiga for the club MOS Wola Warszawa during a match against Skra Bełchatów in 2003. In 2013/2014, he played for Italian club Casa Modena.[2] With the Italian team, he played in the semifinals of the Italian Championship, but lost in matches against Lube Banca Macerata. On July 2014, Bartman announced he would be returning to Polish club, Jastrzębski Węgiel, where he played in the 2012/2013 season.[3] His team took 4th place in 2014–15 PlusLiga. On June 19, 2015 he announced that he moved to Chinese team Sichuan Chengdu, together with Michal Lasko - one of his team mates from previous club.[4] In February 2016 Bartman decided to change club and moved to French Stade Poitevin Poitiers because of the injury crisis affecting the French club.[5]

National team[edit]

In 2009, he won a gold medal in the European Championship. He began his career as an outside hitter, but the coach of Polish national team at the time, Andrea Anastasi, persuaded him to change his position on the court to wing-spiker. On September 14, 2009 he was awarded Knight's Cross of Polonia Restituta.[6] The Order was conferred on the following day by the Prime Minister of Poland, Donald Tusk. With the Polish national team, he won two medals in 2011: silver at World Cup[7] and bronze at World League,[8] where during the Poland - Bulgaria match, he was injured. For this reason, he did not participate in European Championship, where his teammates won bronze medal. He was a gold medalist at the World League 2012 in Sofia, Bulgaria.[9][10] In addition, he received an award for Best Spiker.
