Sports:

Korfball is a mixed team sport that is increasing in popularity throughout the world. The sport was introduced by a Dutch school teacher who founded Korfball back in 1875.
 
He was looking for a team sport that both boys and girls could play on equal terms. He couldn’t find such a sport so he decided to make one up!
The word ‘Korf’ is simply Dutch for ‘basket’ and so we retain the Dutch word for obvious reasons (basketball was already taken!).
The sport has now spread around the world, although Holland got a bit of a head start and so tends to win most international competitions. Korfball is suitable for players of all ages, sizes and shapes, as you will see if you visit one of our training sessions!
 
Just come and give it a go.
Beginners are always welcome (we’re not so far off being beginners ourselves!).
