Changes in the IKF Beach Korfball Rules as from 1 July 2018

With the experiences of the IKF Open European Beach Korfball Championship 2017 in The Netherlands as a reference, including the feedback of the IKF Beach Korfball Committee, the IKF Playing Rules Committee has come up with a number of changes in the IKF Beach Korfball Rules.

Probably the most prominent change in the rules is the installation of a two-point zone. However, it is highly recommendable to closely review the whole document and check all changes. In a later stadium the IKF will present a document with the most important difference between ‘Beach korfball’ and regular ‘Korfball 8′.

Seniors: Belgium, Czech Republic, Cameroon, England, France, Hungary, Morocco, The Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Switzerland, Wales.

Under 19: Belgium, Czech Republic, Hungary, Morocco, The Netherlands, Wales.

The pool composition with the match schedule will be drawn in the coming weeks, taking into consideration the results of last year’s ‘Open European Beach Korfball Championship 2017′. This is good news for Portugal (seniors) and Hungary (U19), both ending second on the overall tournament ranking just behind the Netherlands.

Registration for IKF Beach Korfball World Cup (Europe) 2018 now open!

All 69 IKF recognised National Korfball Federations are invited to participate in the next IKF Beach Korfball World Cup (Europe) 2018 that will take place in Blankenberge (Belgium) from 11 to 12 August 2018.

This event will contain both a Senior and Under 19 category. IKF A & B countries are entitled to subscribe two teams per category, and C-D-E countries only one. Remember that beach korfball is played in a 4 against 4 format, and the maximum number of players per team is 6. So be aware! Because during the tournament it will not be allowed for a player to play in more than one team.

It is up to each National Federation to decide how to select the National Team. This can be done by a standard selection process, but for example also by picking the best (club) team of a National Beach Korfball Championship.

To be able to participate countries must send a complete filled entry form to the IKF no later than 12 March 2018 to officially subscribe for this tournament.

More detailed info and documents has been sent via e-mail to all National Federations.
