A Lesson in Korfball

Posted by & filed under Blog.

 

Have you ever attended a Korfball match?

This past week LVP worked with England Korfball Inspired to spread the word about the sport Korfball and how to gain accreditation for your local club. We talked to a few Korfball players and representatives from England Korfball Inspired, and found that those playing the sport are extremely passionate about it – you may even meet your future spouse!

 

What is Korfball?

Similar to netball and basketball, Korfball is a ball sport with two teams of eight. The players on each team can be either all female or split four men and four women. There is a mixed-gender league and a women’s league, but no men’s league. To score a teammate must throw the ball into a bottomless basket mounted to the end of a pole. This makes for a fast-paced game with lots of scoring and defending from each player. Originated in the Netherlands, Korfball is currently played in over 60 different countries, with two alternating national tournaments.

Everyone at LVP learned a lot about Korfball this week. In fact, we may even start our own club…

BUFF was established in 2005 and initially was formed to showcase urban independent cinema activity in the UK. Over the years the festival has gained momentum and is now supported by a board of actors, journalists, film critics and filmmakers.

BUFF Founder and Director, Emmanuel Anyiam-Osigwe, describes the festival as “A great shop window for filmmakers to showcase their talent and their personalities as producers and directors. It’s a great opening also for actors, actresses, cinematographers, writers, musicians and other key crew to showcase their talents and personalities to an appreciative audience”.
