What is Korfball?

Korfball is a mixed gender team sport, with similarities to netball and basketball. The aim of the game is to score more baskets than your opponent, into a yellow basket on a 3.5m high post. A team is made up of 8 players, 4 male and 4 female. Players can only mark opponents of the same gender. Every player does everything - attacking and definding - and there are no restrictions in terms of positions. Korfball is fast paced, dynamic and tactical, and in our biased opinion, the ultimate team sport!

Who are the Mavericks?

We pride ourselves on being a fun and welcoming club and work hard to achieve on and off the court.
