What Is Korfball and Where To Play It In Switzerland
Plus Invitation to KCZ and Friends Korfball tournament
What is Korfball ?
Korfball was established in Switzerland in 2015 when a group of korfball enthusiasts met for the first time in Lausanne. Korfball itself originates from the Netherlands (Korf is the Dutch word for basket), and it is actually one of only very few mixed sports. Per definition, four women and four men start on the field for each team and try to shoot into a yellow basket with a ball similar to the one used in volleyball. Unlike basketball, dribbling is not allowed and the basket is 3.5m high.
Today, Swiss Korfball counts around 50 members, enrolled in three different clubs: Zürich, Basel and Lausanne. Worldwide, around 70 korfball nations compete against each other. The head office of Swiss Korfball is located in Lausanne, the Olympic Capital, and is since 2015 a member of the International Korfball Federation (IKF).
