Korfball

About our club

Korfball is a fast growing sport of Dutch origin, with similarities to both netball and basketball. With four male and four female players on a team, it is a fully mixed competitive sport, which requires high levels of team work as well as individual skill.

Plus Icon Why should I join the club?

Korfball s one of only a handful of mixed-gendered sports at the University - which creates a great dynamic for our club both on and off the court.

You will have the opportunity to play across different role, with each role in korfball requiring varied skills.

Our current players have a variety of different sporting backgrounds, from rugby to cricket - which gives the club a unique environment as most players learn the sport from scratch and a team is created around the different types of skills the players have.

We have just achieved the highest rank since we were founded (12th in the UK) out of 64 teams and are now committed to creating a 2nd team for next year, which will be in an active league for the 18/19 season.

The committee (which is expanding) we currently have are also very motivated in helping the club grow, with more social events, charity events, training sessions and tournaments in the pipeline than ever before. There truly has not been a better time to join this club.
