Korfball History

                           

Korfball is an exciting mixed team sport, accessible to both young and old, complete beginner or international, that is increasing in popularity throughout the world.

This Korfball sport was the brainchild of Dutch school teacher Nico Broekhusen who founded Korfball in 1902. He searched far and wide, without success, for a team sport that both the boys and girls in his school could play together on equal terms. He chose instead to develop a sport of his own that would encourage both teamwork and co-operation. The word 'korf' is simply Dutch for 'basket' and quite sensibly was not translated to English to avoid confusion with the American Basketball. The sport is often described as a mix between Basketball and Netball since it has some elements of both but in truth the sport is far more  distinctive in its own right than that. Apart from the playing side, the sport has an unrivalled social attraction that is inevitable in a truly mixed sport.

                

The International Korfball Federation was founded in 1933 and has helped the sport to spread its roots throughout the globe and in recent years it has increased in popularity in many countries worldwide. It is now played in the Americas, throughout Europe, South East Asia and Australasia.
