We train on Mondays and Wednesdays 7:30pm-9pm at City Academy, Bristol, BS5 9JH - come and join us, beginners welcome! Enjoy January FREE - just mention you found us through Meetup.
"Korfball" means "basketball" in Dutch and is similar to netball and basketball although there are plenty of differences. Korfball is a mixed-gender team sport which is played with an equal number of men and women, working together to outscore the opposition. We're looking for new people who are keen to learn a new sport and hopefully make some new friends on the way.
Hello and welcome to Bristol City Korfball Club's Meetup event.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT THIS SESSION
This session is one of our summer training sessions. Summer training is a bit more casual and fun, and we have a lot of guest coaches trying out fun new ideas. It's a good session to start the sport and meet everyone, and there will be plenty of people around to help you.
We are a very social club, so there is a strong chance of a group going to the pub after the session for a beer or soft drink. It's a 5 minute walk from the car park :)
BUT WHAT EVEN IS KORFBALL?
Korfball is a fast paced mixed-gender ball sport, similar to Basketball or Netball. In fact it means 'basketball' in Dutch. Teams are made up of 4 boys and 4 girls who work together to outscore the opposition. It's a very inclusive game and lots of fun!
IS IT RIGHT FOR ME?
Korfball is great fun and we are a very welcoming and friendly club. Most people join us with zero experience in the sport. Some people join us to get fit. Others join to make new friends. Whatever your reason you will be welcome with us. At the very least come give it a try, or you'll never know!
We're looking for new players to join us for training, and we're running FREE sessions the first 2 times you attend :) (usually £5 per session)
WHAT TO BRING
Please wear appropriate sports clothing and indoor sports trainers. Also make sure to bring plenty of water! It can get pretty hot in the hall sometimes, so we advise shorts and t-shirt.
