Now that were coming out of winter, are you looking to play a new sport and meet similar people? Why not try korfball at the ASB Sports Centre?

Wellington Korfball club is looking to introduce the sport to new players. A free have-a-go session will be run at the ASB Sports Center for people to learn the game and work up a sweat.

Korfball is a fast paced ball sport, not unlike basketball or netball that emphasizes co-operation. The sport is played in teams containing both men and women. Goals are scored by throwing the ball into a basket. The basket is higher than in basketball and netball, doesn’t have a backboard, and is set in from the back of the pitch like in ice-hockey.

The Olympic- recognized sport is played around the world and there are 4 clubs across New Zealand. Competitive and recreational indoor leagues run throughout the year with an emphasis on fun.

The korfball community prides itself on its friendliness, which is not surprising for a sport that has uniquely been mixed-sex from its inception.
