Cardiff University Korfball Club 2014/2015

Welcome to Korfball!

Here at Cardiff Uni Korfball, we welcome members of all sporting experience. Whether you've never run three meters or even thrown a ball, we want you!

Korfball is a fast-paced and dynamic game that is the only truly mixed team sport in the world.
The game gets its name from the Dutch word Korf which means basket.
There are eight players in a team - four boys and four girls.
It is played on a rectangular pitch which is divided into two halves. One half is the attack zone and the other half is the defence zone.
Four players from each team - two boys and two girls - occupy the attacking and defending zones.
One third of the way towards the halfway line in each half of the court is a goalpost with a basket. It is much higher than the basket in basketball and has no backboard.

Most people have never heard of the sport before university and so you'll be starting from scratch with everybody else.

We're a fun, friendly and sociable sports club. Want to try something new?? Come join us!! Try Korfball!!
