Korfball is a great social way to keep fit and we’re always looking for new members. After your first month of free training sessions the costs are as follows:
Cost: £22 per month
Included in the monthly membership fee:
Training: Twice a week, except July which is the rest month.
Games: During the league season there is usually at least 1 game per weekend per team, with the occasional off week. As we have 2 teams within the club there’s often multiple games a week to watch and play.
Summer Tournaments: As the summer is the Korfball off season, clubs around the country organise outdoor tournaments. The club normally enters at least 2 of these per year.
Bristol Summer League: There are many clubs in the Bristol area, and to keep clubs practicing during the summer an unofficial Bristol friendly league is run. This gives us approximately 5 weeks of playing shortened games, against local teams all within our normal training venue City Academy Bristol.
As well as all of that there are plenty of social occasions to join in with, these will not be included in the monthly membership fee but the activities vary from simple pub trips to more adventurous activities.
There are two teams within Horfield Korfball Club. Following a successful 2018/19 season where our first team went unbeaten to win the league, they then went on to gain promotion to the regional league. We therefore currently have one team playing in the Western Regional League and one in South West Korfball Association Division 1.
Horfield 1 – Western Regional League
Horfield 1 are currently playing in the WRL following promotion last season. Their aim is to maintain their place in this league and fight for a good position in the Western Regional League. See Last Seasons WRL table (without Bristol Hornets)
Horfield 2 – South West Korfball Association – Division 1
Horfield 2 are going into their third season in local league SWKA division 1. This 2019/20 season they will be looking to maintain and improve upon that position. See Horfield 2 fixtures and results
