Cardiff City Cyclones and Mavericks teams both started their 2012-13 campaigns in the Welsh Korfball League with convincing wins.
Last month, Cardiff City sent a squad to compete at the IKF Europa Cupa Preliminary Rounds.
Victory in the Welsh Korfball League Gala Day meant the Cyclones team qualified for the early season Europa cup preliminary round.
The squad – many of whom were making their debut at international level – travelled to the beautiful Loire region of southern France on Friday following a series of training sessions to ensure they were as prepared as possible.

The first public version of the 2012/13 league fixtures has just been made available by the WKL and after putting it though a crash diet to make the file manageable by anyone who doesn’t own a super-computer, it is now here for you all to peruse and argue over.
As far as we know this is the final version, however there could still be minor changes. Either way, get those dates in your diary and let’s look forward to a great 2012/13 league year.
