Sports:

The idea for Mitcham korfball club was effectively born on July 17th 1946 when two Dutch International sides met for a match in Mitcham. Watching that match were three members of the Anglo-Netherlands Sport Association and on 22nd July 1946 they formed Mitcham Korfball Club. For two years the club remained in it's embryonic state. At this point sufficient junior members had shown interest in the club to allow it to enter two teams in the London League in September 1948
 
The club was moderately successful until the arrival of Rudi Muller from Wandsworth in 1950, when Mitcham started it's long history of success. In 1952 Rudi left and John Crisp was appointed captain, a role he kept for the next 15 years. During this period Mitcham were five times cup champions and nine times League Champions.
