In memory of Prof. You-Jeng Chen (1945-2004), Father of korfball in Taiwan, the 3rd biannual Korfball You-Jeng Cup was held in Wei Chuan Puhsin Ranch, Taoyuan Country, on 24-25 August 2013.
Different from the previous editions briefly organizing recreational and social activities, this event invited 3 junior high school teams, 3 senior high school teams, and 4 senior teams to compete for the titles in the outdoor grass field.
A memorial ceremony was organized to deliberately express the youth what the great contribution Prof. Chen had done for Taiwan korfball through many historical pictures telling stories. We hope delivered the highlighted history of korfball in Taiwan to those participants who never met Prof. Chen and further motivate them to inherit Prof. Chen’s spirit and passion of developing and promoting korfball. Mrs Harriet, Prof. Chen’s wife and their sons’ families attended this event with the respect from different generations of participants.
Dr. Jow Fei HO, Taiwan sport minister, surprisingly came to enjoy the barbecue with great pleasant and relaxing atmosphere in the evening 25 August
