Korfball is a great social way to keep fit and we’re always looking for new members. After your first 3 free training sessions the costs are as follows:

Cost: Β£22 per month

Included in the monthly membership fee:

Training: Once a week, except July which is the rest month.

Games: During the league season there is usually at least 1 game per weekend per team, with the occasional off week. As we have 2 teams within the club there’s often multiple games a week to watch and play.

Summer Tournaments: As the summer is the Korfball off season, clubs around the country organise outdoor tournaments. The club normally enters at least 2 of these per year.

Bristol Summer League: There are many clubs in the Bristol area, and to keep clubs practicing during the summer an unofficial Bristol friendly league is run. This gives us approximately 5 weeks of playing shortened games, against local teams all within our normal training venue City Academy Bristol.

As well as all of that there are plenty of social occasions to join in with, these will not be included in the monthly membership fee but the activities vary from simple pub trips to more adventurous activities.

Watch the video below to get a taste of what korfball in Bristol is like. Korfball is a fun, fast and completely mixed sport, with 4 men and 4 women per team. This naturally leads to it being a very sociable sport. It’s ideal to play if you want to keep fit, have a bit of friendly competition and take part in various social activities, the most common of which is a good old fashioned trip to the pub.
