WELCOME TO LUU KORFBALL CLUB
What is Korfball?
Korfball is the only mixed team sport in the world. It is a team sport that both boys and girls can play together on equal terms, encouraging both teamwork and co-operation. It is a fast growing sport in the UK and all over the world, meaning plenty of competitive, fun matches around the country and internationally!
How is it Played?
There are eight players in a Korfball team, four boys and four girls. The court is split into two halves and to start the game the team is split into two groups of four (two male and two female) at each end of the court. One division attacking and the other defending. These groups swap roles after every two goals scored.
Korfball's Key Rule: No shooting whilst 'defended'. This is very much the key to the whole game. In sports like basketball and netball (of which Korfball is often wrongly described as a 'cross between') you can just dump a tall player under the basket or net and just keep delivering the ball up to them. Not so in Korfball!
A Game for Everyone
Korfball is an exciting sport and because few people have even heard of it, almost all players at university level are beginners. This allows coaches to start from scratch and build up a squad of players who quickly improve and become friends as well as team mates.
Feel free to come along to one of our training sessions at The Edge Sports Centre, Wednesdays 5.00pm to 7.00pm. Everyone is welcome!!
