This summer saw a busy time for Guildford Thunder Korfball Club with a string of fun tournament matches around England and The Netherlands as well as coverage by our journalistic friends.
First up, our ace captain Hayleigh Richards got up at the crack of dawn to face a grilling on BBC Radio Surrey’s Breakfast Show. Despite a comic mishearing by presenter, Mark Carter, Hayleigh woke up the county with a fun dive into the sport and why Guildford Thunder is such a great club.
We then featured in numerous local outlets including the Farnham Herald, Round&About and VantagePoint.
And while the sun was out, we spent our Thursday evenings training in the park (followed by the occasional shandy at The Weyside) in preparation for nearby tournaments at Cheam Nomads and Croydon Korfball Club. We played really well against a field of local, regional and national teams, introducing several new junior players and even winning the odd game in between trips to the barbecue.
Finally, in August, several of our intrepid members headed off to Leiden to play in the Velocitas tournament - getting some great experience against Dutch players and having great fun into the bargain.
If this wets your appetite for playing korfball this autumn, just send us a message to let us know you want to come along for a trial session.
