Team history

In 1947 the country decided to rebuild its infrastructure and re-opened the local chemical plant which manufactured explosive materials in 1947. In 1949 its employees registered a sports club under the name Koło Sportowe Wisła Łęgnowo or KS Wisła for short. The club was re-registered as Unia Łęgnowo in 1951.

The volleyball section was created in 1956, but was dissolved in 1961. In 1975, new senior and junior teams were created.

In 2006 after matches with Joker Piła, club called BKS Delecta–Chemik Bydgoszcz was promoted to PlusLiga. In 2013 the club was promoted to the CEV Cup tournament, but resigned. After a bad half of the season 2016/17 Piotr Makowski was dismissed in February 2017. Marian Kardas was a temporary head coach. On February 21, 2017, Dragan Mihailović was announced as a head coach and he led the team to the end of season 2016/17.
