University of Exeter Korfball

University of Exeter Korfball Club

University is all about trying new things, so why not give Korfball a try! We welcome all abilities, from complete beginners to experienced players. Although, Korfball is great fun regardless of experience and the game is very easy to pick up. Korfball is a Dutch version of Basketball, but has similarities to both English Netball and Basketball. It is a mixed non-contact sport with four guys and four girls on each team, alternating between attack and defence. The ultimate aim is to get the ball in the hoop!

The University of Exeter Korfball club welcomes everyone since our training sessions accommodate those who are keen to play casually or competitively and is a great way to keep fit! We are an enthusiastic sports club and a relaxed and friendly bunch; we also love a great social! Anyone can come to one of our taster sessions during Fresher’s week and give Korfball a go or turn up to one of our training sessions throughout the year! So be sure to make the most of life at University of Exeter and try something new this year!
