Korfball Beginner Sessions - Try something new! (Thurs 1930)

3 posts in this topic

WHAT IS KORFBALL?

If you have ever played Basketball or Netball before and want to try something new that uses similar skills (or even if you just fancy trying a new sport) then you're invited to come and play Korfball! If you've never played Korfball before, it is a basket sport like basketball or netball. However the rules are distinctly different from both of those making it unique. It is the only team sport that involves men and women playing together on an equal footing.  The sport was invented in the Netherlands in 1902 and it has grown since then to be played in 54 countries worldwide. Korfball has twice been an Olympic sport and currently enjoys regular World Championships and inclusion at the World Games.

 

The Munich Korfball group usually play on Thursdays. And afterwards we go to a nearby restaurant for a drink and (usually) food. So if you're looking for a way to get a bit more included in the social scene in Munich and you want to try a great new team sport as well as have a workout, why not come along?

 

WHEN:  We have three special beginner sessions on Thursdays 19 Jan, 26 Jan and 2 Feb at 1930.  

WHERE: We train in a sports hall near Therese-Giehse-Allee (on the U5; 10mins from Ostbahnhof and 15mins from Hauptbahnhof)

 

HOW TO ATTEND:

Meeting point at 1910 at Therese-Giehse-Allee on the platform.  Message me on 0151 5801 1177 and let me know you're planning to come so we know to wait for you. We're going to the pub afterwards if you'd like to meet some other club members (we have plenty of beginners who started recently; the club is about 50:50 ex pats and Germans) and there are showering facilities so don't forget a towel if you want to use them. Training is free.

 

WANT TO KNOW MORE: Watch this video explaining the rules: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUtJB5jBOis
