WHAT IS KORFBALL?
Korfball is a fast paced ball sport, a bit like Netball or Basketball. Players pass, shoot, and defend their way to victory!
It originates from the Netherlands and literally translates as "basketball". It was invented in 1901 by the Amsterdam schoolmaster, Nico Broekhuysen.
Teams are mixed gender and made up of 4 men and 4 women. Players are split into 2 groups called a "division", each made up of 2 men and 2 women.
The aim of the game is to score the most goals in the 3.5m high baskets. Players can shoot 360 degrees around the basket, and there is no backboard.
