What is korfball?
Similar to netball and basketball, korfball is a ball sport, invented in the Netherlands, played by two teams of eight players. The objective is to throw the ball into a netless basket on a 3.5 metre high pole.
It’s not all about size
A korfball team consists of 4 male and 4 female players. There’s no blocking or tackling, and you can only defend against someone of the same gender. The rules of korfball stop physicality from dominating the game - so it’s more about movement and quick thinking than it is about strength and height.
