In the summer Clapham is awash with sport, and our first report of the year is in. Earlier this week Clapham Common played host to the Supernova Korfball Club Tournament. What’s Korfball? In a nutshell, it’s a game with two teams, two zones and you score by getting the ball into raised rings with similarities to both basketball and netball. Supernova, a Clapham based club, holds the tournament each year.
The tournament has been running for ten years, with the Supernova Korfball Club now in its eleventh season in Clapham. Around twenty teams gathered to take part and after many matches, the Royal Bank of Canada were 2009′s champions.
Men and women play alongside each other, apparently the only sport in the world that allows this in tournaments. As much as anything, the annual event is a massive social get together usually blessed with summer sun.
