The Executive Committee of the International Korfball Federation is sad to receive the news that Mrs Jenny Everaert, Holder of the IKF Pin of Merit since April 2000 and Honorary Member of the Royal Belgian Korfball Federation (KBKB) died last week at the age 72. Mrs Everaert also was awarded the Lifetime Award of the KBKB.
Mrs Everaert for several decades led the activities of the Event Committee of the KBKB. As such, she was the main organizer of many korfball events, including multiple friendly international matches and IKF World and European (youth) Championships organized by the KBKB.
The IKF will remember Jenny’s perfectionism and professionalism in organizing events, and for always showing a warm welcome to athletes and officials from abroad.
