The timetable for the upcoming 2019 Korfball Australia National Club Championships has been officially released. The timetable can be found on the National Club Championships hub, which has been updated for the upcoming tournament. This hub is your one-stop shop for all schedules, results, and ladders over the weekend, and will be updated at the conclusion of each and every game all tournament.
All matches will be played at the Federation Center in Maitland, and maps of the venue location can be found on each match page, accessible through the National Club Championships hub. Following final nominations, the timetable sees two grades of five teams each, with each grade playing a double round-robin format to determine finalists. This means each team will have four games on each day, for a total of eight pool games before the finals. The finals will see the top two teams from each grade go directly into the final. This year’s Nationals sees seven clubs represented and also marks the debut of the Melbourne Korfball Club. We gladly welcome the newest member of the Korfball Australia family to the fold and look forward to watching them grow in the years to come.
As has been previously announced, the 2019 Korfball Australia AGM will be held on Saturday at 12:20 PM. Games will break for the AGM, allowing teams a lunch break. The weekends’ official proceedings will conclude with the After Party, to be held at the Lucky Hotel in Newcastle. More information on this function can be found on the event page, where you can also buy tickets.
With the timetable being released, we’re officially into the final countdown towards what is shaping up to be the biggest and the best Nationals in quite some time, a remarkable achievement for a Nationals being hosted in New South Wales for the first time. Entry is free for all spectators, all weekend, and we look forward to seeing everyone out at what is the largest annual celebration of Korfball in Australia.
