So, what even is Korfball?

Korfball is a mixed gender sport, similar to basketball & netball. One cannot move with the ball and the aim is to score in a post 3.5 m high. 1/2 the team attacks, 1/2 the team defends, and after 2 goals, everybody swaps.


Why should I join?
 
Korfball is a fun and friendly sport, which involves everybody. It is new, unique and exciting, perfect for a fresh university experience. It can be fun and relaxed or competitive and serious, dependent on your outlook on life. It is for all genders, all abilities. It is easy to pick up. There is a huge variety of styles of training sessions, involving skill practice, tactics practice, fun games and much more!. Also when your friends/parents ask what sport you do, you give them an answer that grabs them, and makes them interested in your university life. Do something different!


Do I have to be tall?
 
It's not how big you are, it's how big you play! Some of the best players in the club aren't the tallest people ever. Collect and shooting are all about positioning and technique. At first it can be really intimidating, but it gets much easier with practice!


But I've never played Korfball before?
 
Don't worry! In this sport, everybody is a beginner even the international players in the first team, those who progress faster may star for the 2nds, 1sts quicker, but everybody picks all aspects of the game up at their own pace. It's a fun, social sport, even to 2nd team level.


Does it matter that I cannot turn up to every training session?
 
No, just turn up enthusiastic when you can. 


What do I need to bring?
 
Trainers and sporty clothes you feel comfortable running about in! Water might be a good idea too. But most importantly, 


What are the socials like?
 
Awesome! This comes from someone who is not one for drinking and going out. Everybody is friendly, their are easy going activities, and one does not have to stay out ridiculously late (unless you want to) Pot Luck Dinners, Awards, Promise Auctions have been highlights of the past. Check out our Social Scene page to see what Patrick & Emma have in store for us!
