Korfball is a ball sport similar to netball and basketball. It has a mixed gender league and an all women league. It is played by two teams of eight players. The objective is to throw a ball through a bottomless basket that is mounted on a 3.5m (11.5ft) high pole. The sport was invented by a Dutch school teacher in 1902. In the Netherlands there are around 580 clubs and over 100,000 people playing korfball. The sport is also very popular in Belgium and Taiwan and is becoming popular in the UK. Korfball is one of the fastest growing minority sports in Europe. It is a game often referred to as a cross between basketball and netball. Unlike netball and basketball, the game is mixed sex. Teams of 4 men and 4 women compete against eachother, with players only able to attack and defend members of the same sex. It is a great way of encouraging mixed sport at school.
