Cardiff University entered three teams into the Bristol Summer Tournament on June 15th. Roughly 28 players competed with the teams finishing 9th, 10th and 12th out of 24.
The second annual Welsh primary schools’ tournament took place on June 20th in Cardiff with three schools competing. The competition was won by Moorland, followed by Roath Park and Ty’n-y-Wern. Awards were given to the best boy and girl from each team with 36 children taking part all together.
For the first time the annual Korflite summer league in Cardiff featured ‘Youth Korflite’ which offered free Korfball to young players. This ran from the June 11th – July 16th with around 12 children participating each week.
In partnership with Sport Cardiff, Korfball featured in the Urban Games as part of the Olympic legacy in Cardiff on the 27th and 28th of June. As a result approximately 600 school children from 8 secondary schools experienced Korfball. On the 8th and 9th of July Cardiff High School hosted Korfball sessions for 11-14 year olds and roughly another 180 children took the opportunity to try Korfball.
Korfball was also offered to children with learning and behavioural difficulties by Sport Cardiff and a qualified coach lead the session.
Korfball Wales would like to thank Ruth Campbell, Julie Prosser, Zoe Rose, Will Hayward, James MacLeod, Ian Russell, Katherine Trelawny, and James Wilcox for their efforts developing Youth Korfball in Wales.
