The first korfball Matchday for the new season took place on November 6, in Basel. Six teams took part in this friendly tournament: the hosts from Korfball Basel were represented by 3 teams, Korfball Club Zürich (KCZ) joined with 2 teams, alongside 1 team from Bern. Although Korfball Club Lausanne could not participate with a full team, we were very happy to see some of their players (Kerim, Ineke, Top and Ben) who joined the Basel and Zürich teams. It was also the first formal appearance of the recently formed Bern team, so welcome Bern!

The day gave a great opportunity to a lot of new entrants in the korfball world to experience the game alongside some long-time players. Despite being friendly, the games did not lack excitement and competitiveness. At the end of the 6 games, the winner was clear – KCZ 2!

Special thanks goes to the referees: Gian Reto, Ben, Sam, Vasilis, and Jantine for ensuring that the rules were followed at all times and our day host Janneke, who made sure everything on the day ran smoothly.

The day ended in Volta Braü, where the players had the opportunity to socialize and enjoy some craft beers and wines.
