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.
