Cardiff City Korfball Club was established in 2003 by a group of ex-Cardiff University Korfers who wanted to carry on playing the sport after their educational career. The club is the most successful in Wales with four Welsh League titles, four regional league titles, two Welsh Cup victories, and three appearances in the IKF Europa Cup. Cardiff City hosted Wales’ first outdoor summer tournament in 2006 which has now become a regular annual event.
Wales was officially recognised by the IKF in 2007 and the Welsh Korfball Squad has competed in international events since 2005. In every squad there has always been members of Cardiff City KC representing Wales; the club has a proud history of producing world-class players and offering top level coaching. At one point, the club had so many members that it created a sister club – Cardiff Dragons, in 2005.
We are always looking for new players, and no experience is necessary or expected; every single one of our members came along to try korfball once upon a time, with no idea how to play, so we are extremely patient with new players – we’ve all been there! All training and equipment is provided, just bring a sports kit and trainers. As long as you’ve got some ability to pass and catch a ball you’ll be able to enjoy korfball.
We have a fully qualified and experienced coach, and our sessions will be sure to offer fitness and fun in equal amounts. The club also has a vibrant social scene and we regularly organise events, outings, and nights-out! So, whether you want to keep fit, meet new people, or just try something different, why not give it a try – your first two sessions are completely free.
For further information contact the club secretary or just turn up to training on Wednesdays (during the summer months it is best to check with the secretary first, as we train outdoors in the summer so the venue can be weather dependent). To best keep updated with the club find us on social media:
