Korfball is vaguely similar to netball/basketball but with our own set of rules and everyone welcome of all skill/fitness levels including absolute beginners!
We are restarting by running outdoor sessions jointly with our friends at MK Lakers, and looking for lots of new players. We will explain the rules if you don't know them! It's great for fitness, fun and meeting new people. (Article updated because we were supposed to start on 5th/6th November but had to delay due to the latest lockdown)
Sessions will be, subject to lockdown finishing on time, from 6-7pm on Thursdays from 3rd December, and 7-8pm on Fridays from 4th December, at Sport Central in Central Milton Keynes near the train station.
Our sessions will consist of some drills (socially distanced) to improve our korfball skills, then gameplay (this involves marking opponents but now has modified rules to improve safety) - everyone is welcome to either just do the drills, or do the gameplay too, or also start playing matches against other clubs.
Since we now need to maintain a register for track and trace, if you are coming, you need to book a space on our app https://spond.com/landing/group/FBSOS - everyone gets their first two sessions for free! Join the "group" and then book a space. Please only book a space if you are planning to come, and please cancel the space if you can't come, because we have a limit on numbers. Do not attend if you or any of your household have any Covid symptoms or if you have been asked to self-isolate. We do health screening (including temperature checks) at the start of the session, to keep everyone safe.
How to find us:
We are on "Netball Court 1". There is a one-way system so you go through the building to get to the courts. There is free parking at The Place Retail Park (where Currys and Starbucks are) and the purple or blue spaces in the council car parks are also free after 6pm.
Looking forward to seeing you on court!
