The timetable for the upcoming 2022 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. The timetable can also be downloaded from here.
All matches will be played at Eagle Stadium in Werribee, 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 four teams each, with each grade playing a double round-robin format to determine finalists. Each team will also play one cross-grade game each, as a development opportunity and to increase the variety of oppositions faced. This means each team will have four games on day one and three (plus any finals) on day two, for a total of seven matches before the finals. The finals will see the top two teams from each grade go directly into the final.
As has been previously announced, the 2022 Korfball Australia AGM will be held on Saturday at 12:20 PM. Games will break for the AGM, allowing teams a lunch break. Nominations for the positions up for election at the AGM are still open, and can be found here. The weekends’ official proceedings will conclude with the After Party, to be held at the Park in Werribee. More information on this function can be found on the event page, where ticket purchases have been extended.
With the timetable being released, we’re officially into the final countdown towards our first Nationals in quite some time, and moving back towards some semblance of normality with regards to the Korfball calendar. 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.
