All ready for the 1st IKF Beach Korfball World Cup (Asia)

From 9 to 10 March 2019, the Hong Kong China Korfball Association is hosting the first edition of the IKF Beach Korfball World Cup (Asia) 2019 that will take place during this weekend in Hong Kong’s Tin Yip Road Park Artificial Sand Court. This is a great step forward in the international development of beach korfball. With this event added to the IKF Competition Calender, two Beach Korfball World Cups will be organized in 2019.

Although this will be the first edition of the IKF Beach Korfball World Cup in Asia, the national korfball federation of Hong Kong has plenty experience with organising successful beach korfball tournaments. Starting in 2000, the federation has annually organized a beach korfball event for both seniors and juniors. Apart from the first edition, the tournament was organised at Repulse Beach every year. Due to its popularity among tourists, this venue served as the perfect place to promote (beach) korfball in Hong Kong and beyond. That participants of that tournament were mostly from Hong Kong, although occasionally, teams from Macau and Taiwan also entered the competition. The first edition of the IKF Beach Korfball World Cup (Asia) is therefore organized by an experienced host, and will be of a more international character than the previous tournaments.

There will be two categories at the IKF BKWC (Asia); Open Group and University Group. The Open Group participants will compete for the IKF World Cup Title, whereas the University Group pool will be an official IKF Recognized competition.

OPEN GROUP (5): China, Hong Kong, Japan, Chinese Taipei and Thailand.
 
UNIVERSITY GROUP (4): China, Hong Kong, Chinese Taipei and Thailand.

The matches in the Open Group will be played on the first day of the event. The University Group matches will be played at the second day of the tournament.

Bonson (France) host city Beach Korfball World Cup (Europe) 2019

The IKF is happy to announce that the next edition of the IKF Beach Korfball World Cup (Europe) 2019 will be hosted in Bonson, France.

The event will take place in the weekend of 6 and 7 July 2019 and subscription is open for all countries around the world. Just like the last years the event will consist of a Senior and U19 category. The best ranked European team in both categories will become European Beach Korfball Champion 2019.

Decisive in granting the organisation of the event to the Fédération Korfbal France (FKF) is the fact that the FKF is getting full support of the municipality of Bonson. From the beginning of the bidding process the municipality showed great ambition and willingness to host the event within its borders. Bonson is located in the heart of the Loire department in the beautiful Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region close to Saint-Etienne. With the presence of the oldest korfball club in France, FJEP Bonson (founded in 1983) it is clear that the city already knows the power of korfball.

With the introduction of the Beach Korfball World Cups last year, the IKF invests in the global development of beach korfball. Every continent now has the opportunity to organise a World Cup. It is more than likely that in 2019 another Beach Korfball World Cup will take place in the continent of Asia. Confirmation of this event is expected before the end of the year.
