CCKC have trained at least once a week over the korfball summer break to prepare for the anticipated high level matches they will be facing. Also part of their preparation was a round robbin friendly pre-season mini-tournament versus the London based teams of West London Wildcats, Kingfisher, Cambridge, Croydon and Bec. Unfortunately, CCKC did not win any of these matches (only 25 minutes long each) but a big improvement could be noticed in the way the team played together over the course of the day.

The results of the preparation matches on 27th Sept were as follows:-
CCKC 3 – 4 Bec
CCKC 2 – 5 Kingfisher
CCKC 2 – 4 Cambridge
CCKC 8 – 10 WLW
CCKC 1 – 4 Croydon

Brecons Horseshoe

On Sunday Kate Brewer, Aidan Dickson, Amy Holloway, Matt Hurford, Kate Saunders, Laura Taylor and Stuart Wood  went walking in the Brecon Beacons.

After locating everyone (not as easy as it sounds without mobile reception) we set off! The first climb from Neuadd Reservoir up to the ridge that that leads to Corn Du got everyone going and cleared the Saturday night hangovers.  Plenty of banter and stories followed with discussions of legendary korfball socials and skiing high on the agenda.

Following lunch on the ridge we reached Corn Du in the cloud.  The weather didn’t dampen our spirits and cleared by the time we neared Pen y Fan. For some members of the group it was the first time they’d actually walked up Pen y Fan despite thinking they’d completed it before walking up Corn Du!!

We quickly climbed Cribyn and Fan y Big before heading back to our start point.
