korfball intro• Korfball is a typical Dutch sport. Nico Broekhuysen came up with this game in 1902. He was in Sweden were he saw the Swedish ringboll, then he came up with the variant korfball. Korfball is one of the sports where boys and girls play together.• Korfball is a ball game and the goal is to throw the ball in the basket. Korfball is played in 2 sections: an attack section and a defence section. In both sections stands a post with a basket on 3,5 meters above the ground. The field of the seniors is 60 by 30 meters and the game takes 2 halfs of 35 minutes.• A korfballteam has 8 players, 4 boys and 4 girls. In each section stand 2 girls and boys. One team of four forms the attack section and the other four forms the defence section. When one of the teams score 2 times, the teams have to switch to the other side. So when it’s 1-1, the attack section walks to the other side and they become the defence. And exactly the same with the defence section.
