EA Patras Volleyball - A1 Ethniki

EA Patras was one of the protagonists after the establishment of the Greek volleyball league in the 1930s, winning the title in 1937-38 and being the runner-up in the seasons 1935-36, 1936–37 and 1939-1940.

EAP returned to the first Greek league for the first time after the formation of the A1 Ethniki Volleyball, by winning the A2 Ethniki title in 1999. It took the fifth place in A1 Ethniki two times in a row (2003–04, 2004–05) and during those three years it participated in the European Federation Cup.

The season (2008–2009) was the most successful so far for EAP in the post-war period. It took the 3rd place in the national championship which allowed the club to participate once more to the European Federation Cup in the season 2009-2010.

The next season (2009–2010) the club held an impressive record during the regular season of the A1 Ethniki Volleyball with 18 wins, 4 loses and 53 points, finishing in the second place, only behind Panathinaikos VC. But in the playoffs the club's performance was disappointing ending up in the 7th place of the league.

In the season 2010-2011, EAP finished in the fifth place in the championship.[1]

Greek Cup

Apart from Athens' and Thessaloniki's major volleyball clubs, EAP - representing Patras - was the fourth club from a provincial Greek city that made it to the final of the Greek Volleyball Cup, in the season 2007-2008. The previous ones were: Ethnikos Alexandroupolis (1981), Orestiada (1993) and Lamia (2007). In the final EAP lost 1-3 to Panathinaikos VC.
