WHAT IS KORFBALL?
Korfball is a ball sport played by hand. It takes a few moments to learn, but a lifetime to perfect. By passing and quick movement players must avoid their personal opponents to shoot the ball through a korf the Dutch word for basket.
After two goals, defenders and attackers switch – placing emphasis on the development of all-round skills: each player should be able to defend, attack, shoot and support his or her team-mates.
Korfball is based on co-operation between players – dribbling and running with the ball are classed as ‘solo play’ and are outlawed.
It is a team game, a high degree of teamwork and communication is required for a team to be successful, as is a good level of physical fitness and ball skills.
