The University of Liverpool Korfball Club is a great place to broaden your horizons and play an up and coming sport throughout the country. Surrounded by welcoming teammates it’s the perfect way to be part of a committed team.
Korfball is the only mixed-gender team ball sport in the world, with 4 boys and 4 girls on each team. The court is split into 2 halves, attack and defence. The key objective is to lose your marker in an attempt to be able to shoot and score without being ‘defended’. You are defended if the opposing player is actively blocking you; meaning that the defender is close enough, between yourself and the post, in order to block you.
Having two teams that play in both BUCS and the North West Korfball league, we welcome all abilities to join our team, whether you’ve played before or never even heard of the sport before. You’ll soon be part of this family.
BUCS is the best way of competing with all other universities on a national scale, competing in multiple tournaments a year. If this isn’t for you, then don’t worry! We still compete regularly on the weekend in the league as well as entering into friendly and fresher tournaments. On top of this there are the many social events that make up the rest of our calendar. There’s something for everyone at Liverpool Korfball Club.
Training will take place twice a week this year 6-8pm on Mondays in the Sports Centre and 6-8pm on Thursdays at the Community College, Roscoe Street. Check our social media pages for Taster session times as they may be different, or contact us with the links below.
