Welcome to the Oxford University Korfball Club homepage. This is where you can find information about the club as well as links to our social media!
Hi, I am Jack and I am the new club president for the 23/24 season. I am a 3rd Year DPhil (the equivalent of a PhD at Oxford) and I am a friendly face around the club so please feel free to approach me with any questions!
We are a super close-knit, friendly club and we are always on the lookout for new people to come and join us. Most of us had never played before coming to University so there is a real beginner feel within the club targeted at getting more people into this amazing sport. So whatever background you have come from, whether you think you are sporty or not at all, Korfball is a really lovely place to be!
In terms of what we offer here at Oxford University Korfball Club, we have 2 teams (O1 and O2). Our first team (O1) are our more competitive team featuring a team in Division 1 of our local league and getting to the National Plate competition of BUCS which is the inter-University competition. So if you are super into Korfball or very competitive then this might be for you! Our second team (O2) is more relaxed and aims to give everyone a lot of court time so that you can come along and have a go at the game. The team is in the lowest division of our local league which is held only a 20-minute walk from Iffley Sport Centre. Do not worry if you are super competitive because our O2 also competes in BUCS, getting through to the National Plate competition this year! There are also many social tournaments to take part in through the year which are super fun!
So, are you interested in trying this super fun, dynamic, mixed sport? Come along to one of our taster sessions and we can show you the ropes! For any questions feel free to drop us an email at email@example.com or send a message via Instagram or Facebook (@oxfordunikorfball)!
