Ninh explains the rules of korfball the
00:03
object of the game is for your team to
00:04
score more goals than the opposing team
00:06
eight players take to the course at any
00:08
one time and to score these goals you
00:11
must shoot the ball into the core which
00:12
is a basket with no net unlike
00:15
basketball however there must be four
00:17
females and four males on the course for
00:19
your team at any one time making this
00:21
one of the few mixed gender sports in
00:23
the world hang on a minute this is just
00:26
basketball right not quite whilst golf
00:30
ball is sometimes seen as a mixture of
00:31
basketball and netball it’s a completely
00:33
different game with completely different
00:35
rules firstly there are two zones an
00:39
attacking zone and a defending zone and
00:41
two players of each gender must stay in
00:43
each zone the court is 40 metres long
00:46
and 20 metres wide and the zones are 20
00:49
meters by 20 meters the course are
00:51
located six point six seven meters away
00:53
from the outline and are three and a
00:55
half meters above the ground there are
00:58
two two and a half meter circles that
00:59
denote the post area and the penalty
01:01
spot area more on this later secondly
01:05
once two goals have been scored the
01:08
zones change meaning that the attackers
01:10
are now the defenders and vice versa
01:12
this means that all players male and
01:15
female get a chance to defend an attack
01:17
making this a role equality sports as
01:19
well thirdly you can only mark one
01:23
person and it has to be a person of the
01:25
same gender so a male cannot try and
01:27
guard a female and you cannot have two
01:30
defenders guarding you at any one time
01:32
in golf ball movement of the ball has to
01:35
be quick as once you are defended you
01:37
can no longer shoot the ball these are
01:40
the four requirements are being defended
01:42
and once you are defended you can only
01:44
pass to a teammate you cannot shoot the
01:46
ball you’ll see a lot of pre-prepared
01:49
passing sequences in order to free up a
01:51
shooter to take a clean shot this is the
01:53
essence of the game players are not
01:56
allowed to run with the ball once a play
01:58
has received the ball the foot that the
02:00
player lands on first is known as the
02:01
landing foot
02:02
they cannot let this foot off the ground
02:04
but may pivot on it whilst moving the
02:06
other leg
02:07
should I play lift the landing leg and
02:09
put it back down this is known as
02:10
traveling and the ball is awarded to the
02:12
other team the opponents will try and
02:15
take the ball away from you by
02:16
intercepting passes walking shots
02:19
retrieving loose balls and defending the
02:22
shooters however an opposing player
02:25
cannot touch another player known as
02:26
contact and must be defending one player
02:29
who is of the same gender there’s also a
02:32
lot of things you can’t do in korfball
02:33
some of which we’ve discussed already
02:35
but here’s some of the things you cannot
02:37
do the game is played in two 30-minute
02:40
hours for a combined playing time of 60
02:42
minutes high score at the end of time
02:44
wins if you’re a little confused don’t
02:48
worry about it as you’ll pick this up
02:49
easily but there’s just a few things
02:51
you’ll need to know before playing or
02:52
watching a game for example free pass
02:56
after a foul a free pass may be awarded
02:59
this is taken from the penalty spot and
03:01
all other place must be 2 and 1/2 meters
03:04
away outside the penalty spot circle the
03:07
player cannot shoot so must quickly pass
03:09
the ball to a teammate as there is a 4
03:11
second time limit penalty for serious
03:15
fouls or plays that are denied a clear
03:17
scoring opportunity a penalty shot may
03:19
be awarded they get to shoot the ball
03:21
from the penalty spot on a post and
03:23
place must be outside both the boast
03:25
circle and the penalty spot circle until
03:28
the ball has left the players hands
03:30
