What is korfball? With Dutch origins, best described as a mix between netball and basketball. It is the only mixed team sport where players alternate between attacking and defending, allowing everyone a chance to shoot.

It is a sport for all with the social side arguably being the main event. As a mixed team sport, we hoast some of the best socials in the SU. We are a laid back club, welcoming new members throughout the year in welcome week, or even through Engage Sports sessions later in the year. So, if you want to try something new and be part of one of the best clubs in the university, come and give Korfball a go! Come check us out at the welcome fair on Sept 25th/26th (click here for details
