Korfball is a ball sport, with similarities to netball and basketball. It is a fast-paced and dynamic game that is the only truly mixed team sport in the world. The sport is accessible to anyone, whether young or old, male or female, beginner or international athlete.
Teams of four female players and four male players try to shoot a ball into a korf (basket). The sport’s main characteristics encompass all-round skills, co-operative play, controlled physical contact and gender equality. Teams of eight players divide into two sections – two male, two female in each section. Playing area consists of two large squares joined along the centre line, each square with a ‘korf’ set in one third from the back line. One section starts the game in attack, the other in defence. Sections swap roles after two goals have been scored.
