The UK’s only truly gender-diverse sport

Korfball is a unique mixed gender sport, consisting of teams of four men and four women. In a game that shares its roots with basketball, all players collaborate to score goals by shooting into a basket while trying to prevent the opposition from scoring.

Korfball is recognised by the International Olympic Committee, the International World Games Association and Sport England.

England Korfball’s Craig Gosling said: “Our partnership with the BBC is the start of realising our goal to grow our audience fan base. The partnership will enable us to attract new fans to the sport and bring them closer to the action with behind the scenes footage, original content and a great cast of pundits, analysts and talent”
