EP5: Korfball, That's A Sport?

Korfball, an unconventional team sport, combines athleticism, strategy, and teamwork. Originating in the Netherlands during the early 20th century, it has been likened to a fusion of basketball, netball, and handball. What sets korfball apart from many other team sports is its strong commitment to gender equality. Unlike most team sports, korfball promotes physical education while allowing both men and women to play on equal footing. This core principle not only emphasizes inclusivity but also introduces an intriguing layer of strategic complexity to the game. International competitions were established, leading to the formation of the International Korfball Federation (IKF) in 1933, responsible for overseeing the sport's global growth. Back home, the Malaysian Korfball Association (MKA) has been established for several years with the aim of promoting the sport. Lim Hui Qi, the association's secretary, joins us on the program this week to discuss their efforts in growing korfball in the region.
