Balliol wins korfball Cuppers 2017Congratulations to the Balliol korfball team on winning Cuppers on 14 May 2017. The winning team were Laura Bossino, Xavier Greenwood, Will McCarthy, Ben Simon and Helen Davies.

Helen - who describes korfball as ‘like basket/netball but you shoot into a korf (Dutch for basket) and the teams have to be mixed’ - says that they made it into the final having beaten a team with two of the best Oxford 1st teamers. The final itself was ‘the game of all games. Coming back from 0-1, we were winning 3-2 when the club president scored in the last minute. However, we did not falter but scored in the last 10 seconds!’

Helen was in the winning team when Balliol won Korfball Cuppers in 2014. This latest Cuppers win, she says, ’was a great way to end my Oxford korfball career.’
