What is Korfball?

In case you haven’t heard of it, korfball is a game that is often described somewhere between netball and basketball with the aim of putting as many goals as possible through the 3.5m high ‘korf’. Korfball is a fast-paced indoor team sport, with teams of 4 boys and 4 girls aiming to shoot a korfball into what is an essentially a smaller, taller, more yellow basketball hoop. The sport originated in the Netherlands but has now spread across Europe and to the rest of the world.

A few rules:

  1. You can’t move with the ball. 
  2. Boys can only mark boys, girls can only mark girls.
  3. You can’t shoot if you’re being defended by your opposite number, which means he or she is close enough to block the ball if you were to shoot.

Sounds easy? Good! Come give it a try!
