Korfball in the Netherlands
Korfball is a fun and exciting game that everyone can play. The game takes just a few minutes to learn, but for those who take it seriously, a lifetime to perfect. The sport is as old as basketball and netball and is played in over 50 countries around the world. Over 200,000 people play korfball for fun, fitness or competition.
Korfball is fun
Each team consists of 4 men and 4 women who compete to shoot the ball through the korf. Each player is in a duel with an opponent of the same sex and must use their speed, agility and skill to break free to shoot and score. Korfball is fast, dynamic and challenging aerobic sport. While it values cooperation within the team, it can also be highly competitive.
Korfball has been played in England for over 60 years and there are a wide range of established competitions. Many players play to enjoy the game and to get a good workout whilst enjoying the unique advantages that playing the only true mixed sport can provide.
At the elite level, korfball players have to maintain a very high level of fitness and some train several times a week. The England korfball team are currently ranked 6th in the world and are former World Championship bronze medallists.
Whether you are looking for a break from the humdrum of the gym or whether you have aspirations to represent your country on the international stage then korfball could be for you.
