About Norwich City Korfball Club
Norwich City Korfball Club is one of the longest established clubs in Norwich. Founded in 1994 by Philip Buttinger, who brought korfball to Norfolk, it led the Norfolk League for many years, developing some of the strongest players in the region and being a core influence on the Norfolk league.
Over the years more and more clubs have started up - some as breakaways from Norwich City which is a tribute to the club's youth development and influence.
Currently the club has 6 teams - 2 in the first division, 3 in the 2nd and 1 in the third. This means that there is a good level for everyone to play, and people of all ages can play together. There is a lot of experience in the club, and as korfball is as much a game of judgement and timing as it is sheer speed and fitness, this can be a real advantage for newer players who want to improve quickly. There is junior training for those too young to join the senior club.

The 2020 AGM on Zoom for Thursday 8 October at 8pm. If you would like to attend, there will be joining details and papers circulated nearer the date.
Clearly no BBQ this year :-(
We are keen to get people involved in running the Club and you don’t have to be a player to help organise, coach or to volunteer to help in another role.

6. Training & Teams for next season
We welcome players of all ages, levels of fitness and even those people who don't like team sports - korfball is competitive but also friendly (most of the time!)
Membership fees are £15 a month waged and £10 a month unwaged which covers all training costs, match fees and team shirt. This is normally paid by monthly direct debit. A proportion is considered a donation and therefore eligible for Gift Aid. There is a discount available for families with several members playing - Norwich City is a club that encourages whole families to play.
League matches are played on Sundays, late afternoon through to the evening at Norwich Sportspark UEA, and the league runs from October to Easter each year. Through the summer there is outdoor training and tournaments to play.
