Scotland’s largest korfball club holding free trials at Capital base
and live on Freeview channel 276
Korfball is a Dutch sport often described as a mixed between netball and basketball where the basic premise is also to get a ball through a basket (or koft).
It is also a mixed gender sport where four men and four women play together as a team.
Katrina Caldwell, the club’s development officer, says: “One thing that makes korfball unique is the way in which team members, regardless of gender, have to work together.”
Adds Katrina: “I think one of the main attractions is that most people have never heard of korfball before they try it!
“That makes a great environment for people wanting to try something new!
“I got into korfball at university. I had never heard of korfball but one of my sister's flatmate's played and convinced me to try it. I wanted to play a team sport for the social aspect and never looked back!
“Last October, along with three club-mates, I went to Turkey in as part of the Scotland team for the World Korfball Championship Qualifier.
“We have teams competing at all levels so there is a place for everyone in our club. “
The club train on Wednesdays (7-9pm) and Fridays (7-8.30pm). The first three beginners sessions, starting on Wednesday, are free.
