IKF Open European Beach Korfball Championship 2017

The IKF is proud to announce its first ever beach korfball tournament:  ‘IKF Open European Beach Korfball Championship 2017’! The event will take place in the weekend of 19 and 20 August 2017 and will be held in The Hague, The Netherlands. The organiser is the Royal Dutch Korfball Association (KNKV).

Beach korfball is already played in multiple countries in all continents around the world. It has a different lifestyle approach and is especially popular with the younger age groups. Therefore IKF is convinced that beach korfball helps to invest in the future of korfball. To point out this important role in development, the tournament in The Hague will consist both of a Senior and an Under 19 category.

With only four players needed to form a team, instead of eight in regular korfball, IKF is aiming to make it easier for national associations to initiate new korfball activities and reach new players. On the competition level IKF believes to create more equality between the teams and lower costs for national associations by having less athletes involved and using a short tournament format.

The venue of the tournament will be ‘The Hague Beach Stadium’. This unique accommodation is located directly on The Hague Beach and has all the necessary requirements for hosting a top beach sport event. The spectacular location at the waterside is perfect to host multiple side events and really involve korfball fans and visitors with the event. With the track record of the KNKV in organising events, the IKF Open European Beach Korfball Championship 2017 can only end up being a success!
