The sport of Volleyball started in Bahrain in the 1950s and was played mainly in summer, Volleyball tournaments were organised by Gulf Air and the Pakistan Club, and at that time all the players were foreigners.

Bahrain Club assumed responsibility and started organising this competition annually. At that time, Al-Hala Club won all the championships. In 1974, the first committee of the Bahrain Sports Federation was formed to supervise the championship held in summer in which the Pakistan Club won it after beating Al-Hala Club in the finals.

Thereafter another committee was named by the Department of Youth Welfare and National Activities to set up the foundations of the Bahrain Volleyball Federation. This committee played a key role as it drafted the constitution and organised a preliminary tournament for the teams in preparation for joining the federation . In this tournament the Pakistan Club again beat Al-Hala Club at the finals.

The constituting general assembly of the federation held its first session which was attended by 17clubs-to approve the constitution. After deliberations, the constitution was approved and the Board of Management elected on Tuesday, September 26.

The federation sponsored the first local general tournament with the participation of 21 clubs. When this number increased to 27, the clubs were divided into two groups.
