Overview

Kenya Pipeline Women Volleyball team  was formed in 1985 after Waithaka Kioni, then a junior employee at Kenya Pipeline Corporation managed to convince his bosses to start a volleyball club.

The current Kenya volleyball Federation President Waithaka Kioni is credited with the formation of Kenya Pipeline which is one of the oldest female volleyball club taking part in the KVF league as at 2017.

Kioni was stung by a 'Volleyball bug' in his first contact with the sport after watching a local match in Nyeri and despite the fact that he never played volleyball at any stage of his life, he managed to convince the senior management at Pipeline to invest in a female club that would become the pride of the nation years that followed.

Kenya Pipeline dominated both the local and continental scenes in the 90s; at one time they held the record of most cups won by a female club at Africa club championship (7) until they were overtaken by Al Ahly whom they lost to in their final in 2016.Locally they boast of 11 national titles including (2016).

Just like Prisons, Pipeline has over the years contributed the majority of players in the National team. 

Pipeline enjoyed quite a dry spell in the early years of 2000, without winning the national title but they regained their rhythm in 2014  when they won the title for three consecutive years, all in Mombasa.

Some of the coaches who have coached Pipeline are Gilbert Ohanya, Sylvester Kioko and David Lung'aho. Currently the all red club is coached by Japheth Munala with Triza Atuka as the captain.
