What is korfball?

Korfball is a unique mixed team sport that men and women play together, with similarities to basketball, and handball, but very different.  It's fast-moving and skillful, for players of all ages (we range from early 20s to 40s) and various abilities (no experience at all, to 15+ years), and it's competitive yet friendly. 

How is it played?

It's easy to pick up the rules of korfball.

Here are the basics: 

  • You score a point by shooting the ball through a basket

  • You can only shoot if you shake off your marker, but you can't run with the ball

  • Each team consists of four men and four women, with half attacking and half defending

  • Attackers and defenders swap roles after two goals.
