What is Korfball?
Korfball is a mixed gender game, similar to mixed netball or basketball, in which a team consists of four men and four women. The aim of the game is to put the ball through a basket which is 3.5 metres in the air (much higher than the basket in basketball or netball!).
Through teamwork and tactics the attacking team tries to generate opportunities to shoot without the defending team marking or “defending” them. Although korfball is a mixed sport, only men can mark men (or “defend” men) and women can defend women.
