What is Korfball?
Korfball is a fast-paced ball sport that relies on both tactics and teamwork, often described as a mixture between netball and basketball... just with a taller post! A team is made up of four male members and four female members, with half of this team attacking and the other half defending (rotating after every two goals scored). The sport originated in the Netherlands and has grown rapidly in popularity in recent years, with more teams entering regional leagues year on year.
