Korfball

Come and join one of the most exciting clubs on campus to take part in this the best kept secret world sport.

What is Korfball?

Korfball is a fast-paced and dynamic game that is the only truly mixed team sport in the world. Teams consist of 8 players (4 men, 4 women) and points are scored by throwing the ball into a "korf" (basket). Every two goals each half changes role from Attacking to Defending. Korfball began in the Netherlands and is now a worldwide sport - the world championships are being held in Belgium in November 2015!

Korfball at Keele

Keele currently has two teams (but we're hoping to expand to three) and competes nationally in BUCS and also in our local league known as SaCKA (Staffordshire and Cheshire Korfball Association.) We run a wide variety of socials based both in the SU and off-campus - coming to socials is a great way to get to know people off the court. Eleanor, our coach has had a lot of experience with new players so you'll understand the game in no time at all! As a club, we are regulars at tournaments throughout the year - in particular the Fresher's tournament in Lancaster in October!

Where do I sign up?

During Fresher's week there will be an opportunity to try out different sports to see what you enjoy - Korfball will be running its taster sessions over the first two weeks of term on Wednesday from 6-8pm in the Walshaw Hall. Please come and see us at the Sports Fair during Fresher's week too!
