THE final round of matches in the England Korfball League will be played this Sunday at Whitgift School, Croydon. The top 10 teams in England will be playing each other and will decide who qualify for the end of season play-offs as well as deciding who will be relegated.
The top four teams, after the regular season, qualify for the end-of season play-offs, which take place on May 4 and 5, and it will decide which team will become the England Korfball League champions for 2012/13.
Four London teams - Bec, Croydon, Nomads and Trojans - will be in action on Sunday. Trojans have already qualified for the play-offs but will want a win to ensure an easier draw. Bec and Nomads are also in the hunt for the play-offs. Bec are based in Tooting, Croydon and Trojans are based in Croydon, while Nomads are based in Epsom.
Korfball is the world's only mixed team sport with four male and four female players on each team. The game is Dutch and shares its roots with basketball and netball. It was invented in 1902 by a Dutch schoolteacher who wanted a game that all his pupils at the first co-educational schools in Amsterdam could play together.
The London Korfball Association is running Sunday's event, with matches commencing at 10.30am and run until 6.30pm.
Mark Paxton, Development Officer of the London Korfball Association, said: "We are delighted to be hosting the top korfball players in the country at this event.
"With four London teams in action, we are hoping for lots of local support to cheer our sides on and create a great atmosphere. Overall, it should be a memorable day out."
Entrance for spectators is free.
