What is Korfball?

Korfball is the only truly mixed gender sport in the world.

It has similarities to netball, basketball and handball but the sport’s defensive play and iconically tall baskets in particular make it unique. A team is comprised of eight players: four of each gender. Each player is responsible for marking a player of the same sex from the opposing team; marking the opposite sex is prohibited.

Korfball was invented by the Dutch schoolteacher, Nico Broekhuysen, in 1902. The sport remains most popular in the Netherlands where there are over 100,000 players. Its popularity however is spreading globally. The sport takes its name from the Dutch word “korf” which simply means basket. These baskets are bottomless with no backboard, standing at an impressive 3.5m or 11.5ft.
