3.4 TYPES OF KORFBALL
(i) MALE OR FEMALE KORFBALL
Single sex korfball
One of the normal korfball games.
The rule prohibiting hindering of the opposite sex now has lost its relevance making the defending side stronger, anyone can defend everyone. As a training exercise, the idea is to create chances whereby “switching” from the defence is not possible. For example, without a fixed post player and with assists from in space.
The rule can also be that it is only allowed to defend one’s own personal opponent. The game then becomes different, both for the defenders (one to one becomes more important) and for the attackers (outplaying one’s direct opponent is more important).
