  1. The Final

    On Sunday, we see a repeat of last years final, with current champions Trojan aiming to claim a record 12 titles in a row against the current European Shield champions Bec.

    In Saturday's first semi-final Trojan outclassed Tornadoes 31-23 in front of the Copper Box crowd. Jonny Nickerson stared with 10 goals as the 11-time champions outclassed their opposition.

    In the second semi-final, last year's finalists Bec beat Norwich Knights 25-18.

  2. Eleven years and counting: Trojans the team to beat

    “You have to do better and better every year to stay at the top. Everyone’s gunning for you. That’s the challenge." Those are the words of Trojans chairperson Stella Hegarty, whose team have won the last 11 Grand Finals.

    The team has a family look about it - league leading scorer David Brooks is one of four family members on the roster. Hegarty says the team has almost grown up together plying korfball.

    Trojans will be tough to beat this weekend and Hegarty says this is down to the experience they have of playing in Europe's top competitions for the last 11 years.

    "In last year’s semi-final we were three down with three minutes to go - it helps you to have that experience," she says. "In that moment – three up against Trojans – other teams can make slightly the wrong decision on what pass or shot to take.

    Hegarty, a convert to the game from netball when she went to college, agrees that this is possibly the closest-matched semi-final lineup in recent years. "We’re getting older now and so people are thinking ‘are they getting past their prime?’” she says.

    “Any of the four teams in the semi-finals can win it. Tornadoes, who we’re playing in the semi-finals, are very young, very fit , they can push us the whole way and the only game we drew this season was against them. There could be only a couple of goals deciding any of the games - so anything could happen."

  3. The Swains: How to get involved in korfball

    A look at the Bec roster shows that the London club has three Swains down at finals weekend, although it was daughter Amy, now the physio, that brought sister Chloe and mother Lisa into the sport.

    "Amy came home from school one day saying 'can I join this club called korfball'" recalls Lisa, "That was when she was nine and the first time I'd even heard the word korfball.

    "In the summer, the coach invited me to play in a parents’ competition at the end of the children’s game – I thought it was just a single game but it turned out to be a tournament and we were handed a fixture lit of about six games."

    That got Lisa, now the club's manager, playing too. Her husband had a go as well. That's what stood out for us - me and my husband could play it together, because it’s a mixed sport, she says.

    Amy (22) admits to having been a bit of a toyboy t the time and took to korfball. "When I saw something that I could play that wasn’t football - but that I could play with the guys that were my friends at the time – that was the main reason - and the main reason I’m still playing," she said.

    18-year-old Chloe was too young to join with Amy joined. "But later on it was like Mum, the coaches asked if I wanted to join in and then I persuaded my mates from school to some too," she recalls.

  4. What is korfball?

    Korfball has its roots in the Netherlands, and has similarities to both basketball and netball in style.

    Designed as a mixed sport, korfball has two teams of eight players - four men and four women.

    The object is to propel the ball into the korf (or basket), which stands 3.5m (11ft 6in) - higher than basketball or netball goals.

    You may not have heard of korfball but it is an action-packed sport that takes the rules from basketball and netball and mashes them together.

    It is a ball game that relies on passing, movement and co-operation and it is different to almost all sports for one reason - it is a mixed-gender sport.

    Teams consist of eight players, four male and four female players, so korfball is a great way to get the whole family involved.
