Korfball Australia is pleased to announce the formation of a Korfball 4 competition, to be run under the guidance of National Coach Phil Sibbons. As the name suggests, Korfball 4 (also known as K4) is played between teams of 4 players. Additionally, K4 is played in a single division, with two korfs in the one division. Those who have participated in, or at least watched, the beach korfball competition run in South Australia the last few summers will be familiar with the basic concept of this compact, fast-paced version of the sport.
The competition will run from the 20th of October until the 8th of December. Held at Sturt Gym, Flinders University, matches will run from 8:00 PM until 9:45 PM. More information, including a map of the venue location, can be found on the event page. The current hope is for each team to play two matches of six minute halves each week, dependent on the number of teams entered. Information on the similarities and differences between K4 and the traditional version of Korfball can be found on the Youth Korfball Rules – Korfball 4 and 8 resource.
