Korfball since: 2020

My 2020 new year’s resolution was to try a new sport. Korfball was to be that sport.
The friendly atmosphere and varied social activities during lockdown kept me as a member instead of quitting - like most resolutions - and I now wish I found the sport sooner!

I joined the Atoms when I moved to the area as I was looking for a way to keep fit and make some friends locally. Everyone was very welcoming and it turns out korfball is really fun as well!

I joined atoms as I moved to the area and wanted to try a new sport (I love anything active!). Everyone was so welcoming and it's really fun, so I joined committee last year! 

Club Coach:

Korfball since: 1995


Why I like korfball: I don't, not really. I just like bossing everyone around with my broken knee.  I've been with the club a long time and it's been great to help and see the club develop to what it is today. Aussie Rules and Beach korfball are exciting mix ups for summer training.

Korfball since: 2022

I first started Korfball during the summer of 2022 and i've not stopped playing since. This summer I've enjoyed the in tournaments for the first time and am looking forward to scoring some more goals in the league this year!

I bloomin' love team sports! I've played netball since I was 16, and one of my teammates persuaded me to come to a korfball taster session... I haven't looked back since!

I joined a korfball team first back in university, and as soon as I moved to the area made sure to join Abingdon. It's a great club to be a part of!!

I was inducted into the cult of korfball in my last year of university and was pleasantly shocked to find Abingdon had a club. Now I schedule the whole of my summers around attending Atoms korfball tournaments.

I joined korfball to learn a new sport, meet people and keep fit.  I stayed at korfball because it's amazing!

Real life mission: To transform the Atoms orange into Atoms purple.  Here is a photo from a club social.

Someone once said "Hey come and try korfball".  "What's that?!" I said.  The rest is history!  Korfball is great for beginners as whenever you join you’re likely to be playing with others who are new too.  Great sport requiring teamwork, and great people as well.

I joined korfball to make new friends and learn a new sport...and I couldn't resist the chance to wear an atoms shirt, even if it is bright orange.

Korfball since: 2015

I've joined the committee as a social sec to organise game nights, pub crawls and big nights out! I also hand-make the prizes for the annual awards ceremony. My favourite thing about playing korfball with the Atoms is the foreign travel to exotic tournaments.

Korfball since: 2019

I joined the club at a charity shop fancy dress social, and since then they have fed me, watered me, put a roof over my head and loved me very much.  They even took me skiing :-)  I love to hang out in the scoreboard box, it's snuggly and warm in there in winter.

 

In return I cheer on the sidelines at every match, and help keep score so everyone knows what's happening.
