IKF World Beach Korfball Weekend 2020

It is time to announce a new korfball community building event: the IKF World Beach Korfball Weekend 2020!

The current corona situation maybe prevents us from organising events where we can meet in person, but it doesn’t prevent us from staying connected as korfball community. To strengthen the connection between all IKF member countries, korfball clubs and individuals, the IKF has decided to launch the IKF World Beach Korfball Weekend 2020.

This ‘event’ is held in the weekend of 29 and 30 August and will be created by everyone together. Combining all type of beach korfball activities in the same weekend. We challenge all korfball lovers over the world to organise a beach korfball activity in this weekend. A tournament, a match, or whatever kind of activity you like to do and show. Just connect your activity with the IKF World Beach Korfbal Weekend 2020 and be part of the event!

Let’s be very clear; Safety goes first! So please make sure that you are well informed and always respect the guidelines of the (local) government to avoid spreading the corona virus. Don’t organise activities that can harm the health of yourself or others.

Having said that, the corona situation and imposed limitations are very diverse all over the world and in many countries sport activities, specially outdoors, are allowed and even stimulated. Physical activity or exercise strengthens your immune system and lower the risk of getting sick. And maybe more importantly, doing sports is fun and helps both your body and mind to stay healthy!

Make sure to follow the IKF Social Media Channels to know how you can connect your beach korfball activity. And of course, in the case there is no beach available where you are located, but you still want to be part of the event, you are more than welcome to connect any another kind of korfball activity!

Scheveningen (NED) will host the 3rd edition of the IKF Beach Korfball World Cup (Europe) – (Cancelled)

UPDATE (22 April, 2020) – In alignment with the KNKV, the IKF had decided to cancel the IKF Beach Korfball World Cup (Europe 2020), which was planned for 7-8 August 2020 in The Hague, The Netherlands.

The Dutch government has announced that the ban on (sport)events in The Netherlands has been extended to 1 September 2020, which automatically means that no event can take place in August. The IKF will not look for another date in 2020 for this event.

Although this announcement probably doesn’t come as a surprise to you following the earlier cancelation of IKF events, it is still a sad moment. However, the IKF would like to thank the Royal Dutch Korfball Federation (KNKV) for their preparational work

UPDATE (23 March, 2020) – Due to the coronavirus, the subscription deadline for the IKF Beach Korfball World Cup (Europe) 2020 has been extended until 30 April 2020.
The final decision on this event will be made in the months to come and will very much depend on the development of the corona virus. More detailed info has been sent to all national federations via email. More info ►

Following the first two successful editions of the IKF Beach Korfball World Cup (Europe) in Belgium and France, the third edition of this new event will be hosted by the KNKV in Scheveningen, the Netherlands. The KNKV organized the IKF Open European Beach Korfball Championship in 2017. This event has been awarded the IKF World Korfball Award for Best Event, granted during the IKF General Meeting in 2019.

Therefore, the IKF is very confident that this edition of the BKWC will be a big success as well. For the Dutch team, the location will be an extra motivation to finally claim the trophy, after seeing Belgium (2018) and Portugal (2019) taking the win in previous years.
