Korfball (Dutch Basketball)
Korfball is the Dutch variant of Basketball or Netball and has been played in Netherlands and Belgium since the early 20th Century.
It has been played in Ireland since around 2009 when the Ireland Korfball International team first entered the IKF European Championships.
While there is no league in Ireland as yet, the International team enters Tournaments in the United Kingdom, Belgium and Netherlands.
In keeping with the Dutch ‘Total Football’ Tradition the Attackers and Defenders swap positions after two scores by either team, making an All-Rounders game.
Below you will find links to various competitions in which Ireland entered.
