Starting Thursday 20/9/2012 CCKC will be offering a second training session for a trial ten week period. Training will be held at Glamorgan Sport Park and will begin at 6:15.
It would be great to see some new faces along (to all of you who can’t normally make our Wednesday night session – this is your chance!).
When: Every Thursday
Where: Glamorgan Sport Park, Treforest (only 5 mins up A470 from Junct 32, Coryton)
Time: 6:15 – 7:45 pm
Price: £3 per session (cheaper than any gym class)
The Welsh capital welcomed top korfball players from across the UK last weekend (Saturday 18 August) for Cardiff’s annual summer korfball tournament. The sixth summer tournament, hosted by the Cardiff Dragons and Cardiff City Korfball Clubs, attracted over 100 players from clubs across the UK including Manchester, Gloucester, Nottingham, Exeter and Basingstoke.

Back in 2008 we had a visit from the BBC who were running a series on upcoming sports in the UK… see how Cardiff City and Cardiff Dragons got on with the roving reporter in this recently re-discovered footage…
There doesn’t seem to have been much in the way of sunshine over the last few weeks. Fortunately the weekly outdoor Korflite sessions held on Wednesday at 19:00 in Roath Park have missed the worst of it, and we’ve been lucky to have a few sessions in glorious sunshine.
Here is a small taster of the action…
Grey, overcast, with a few drips of rain starting to fall… typical conditions for a summer tournament then! Cardiff City’s first summer tournament this year was in Bristol on Saturday 16th June.

The mystery of the start of season social continues.Â Upon asking the newly appointed Social Sec Aidan where the social was to take place 1am the night before and all he said was â€œ I dunno itâ€™s somewhere in the bayâ€? I started along with other people to get a little nervous to whether the social was a complete mystery even to himself! However, fear not a text came through with a challenge to all takers to arrive in the bay at 4pm armed with flat shoes as a Treasure Hunt around Cardiff Bay had been arranged.

Meeting in the Prince of Wales everyone gathered with their hats in tow for the start of the mystery social (however, the biggest mystery is why our chairman managed to start at the Gate Keeper!) With no one knowing what was going to happen Elaine dished out the wonderful home made mapsÂ to start the intrigue! With many people not obviously passing GSCE Geography this caused more bemusement about where we were going and what the committee had in store for the evening. Led to believe only one person guessed where we were going was Holly (you clever thing!)
Leaving the Prince of Wales everyone made their way over to the Millennium Stadium and under the bridge to our boat for a private night cruise of the bay! Decorated in blue and whiteÂ the party started with a wonderful presentation of last season highlights crafted by Ramzi and Stu (click here if you want to see it again!)

On Tuesday Mike Bushell from BBC Breakfast came along with cameraman Simon to film our training session with Cardiff Dragons. A friendly game was played against Dragons and then Mike came on to play and be shown the basic rules of Korfball.
