Why play korfball?

From absolute beginner upwards

Unlike many established sports which expect you to be a certain standard before joining the club, the MK korfball clubs actively welcome all players from absolute beginner upwards. Most UK players start as adult beginners, we teach you the rules and skills, and there will be other players there who have not been playing very long!

Great if...

…you want to play a sport all winter, that is indoors – no freezing or getting wet on an outdoor pitch, or having matches cancelled due to weather!

Great if...

…you want to play a competitive sport but one with a lower risk of injury than sports like football or rugby, e.g. if you have previously had injuries.

Great if...

…you like variety, because all players get to both attack and defend, rather than being stuck in a single playing position.

Korfball is a good way back into team sports if you currently don’t do much sport or feel unfit, since you get a break while the ball is in the other section of the pitch!

You’ll get a chance to play at whatever level, or amount of travel, that you want – either just train, or play MK local league matches, or play Oxfordshire league matches, or play a tournament (usually outdoors over the summer, but sometimes indoors in the winter) which is sometimes further away, but you get to play all day rather than just one game and is sometimes followed by a party!

If you’re more interested in the social side, then the clubs have regular post-training drinks, club socials, stay overnight and party after some summer tournaments, and the MK clubs do at least one trip abroad every year to play in a tournament in Europe!
