If you've never heard of Korfball don't worry! Most people who are asked generally have never heard of the sport!
This brief overview of Korfball, should give you a small insight into one of the fastest growing and most sociable sports you'll ever play!
Korfball is played with a team of 8 players, made up of 4 girls and 4 boys. A Korfball court is split into two halves with 4 players from each team Vs 4 of the opposition team, 2 boys and 2 girls from each team in a half. The objective is to score in the opposing Korf (Dutch for hoop/basket). The team who scores the most points wins!
Our training sessions are designed with experienced players and beginners in mind. Each training session covers the basics of Korfball and includes challenging drills for those with experience who wish to improve their skills. We play in the Welsh Korfball League and travel to Cardiff and Swansea for away fixtures, whilst hosting matches in Aberystwyth throughout the year.
As a whole, Korfball is a much more relaxed sport compared to other competitive sports teams. This is due to the mixed gender nature of Korfball which allows players of all abilitiies, to interact, learn the ropes and play a sport unlike any other!
Hopefully this has helped make the wonderful world of Korfball a bit more clearer for you and we look forward to seeing you at future training sessions.
