This month it was the turn of D2 to take on the likes of Uni 2 and today we won by 13-6 which was a fantastic result on our part.  There was a number of great penalty shots by some of our players including Chris Heron and Alex Lea.  Peter Mulley and Chris also both scored four goals a piece so well done guys!
D2 worked hard for their victory today and they will back at St Gregs next Sunday to take on Abingdon 3 at 7.15pm.  D1 will be playing Isis 3 in the previous match at 6pm.

Last Monday saw the return of the Didcot Dragons to That’s Oxfordshire TV!  This time our very own Daniel Wood featured on the Sport in Spotlight show with Craig Punfield.  He was joined on the big purple couch with coaching director of Oxford City and County Bowls Club, Rosemary Phelps.  Go Dan!

Dan did an exceptional job in giving viewers the lowdown on our dynamic team and promoting the club as a friendliest korfball team in Didcot!  For those who missed it, here it is again to catch up:

The new korfball season begins!

Posted on

The new korfball season is upon us and on Sunday 2nd October 2016 Didcot Dragons 1 and Didcot Dragons 2 took to the court once again in a head-to-head battle to mark the beginning of the season.  With the first team opposing the second team, the match was inevitably going to be a Didcot wipe-out, but which team were to triumph was anyone’s guess?!

With Dragons 2 with one player down, Dragons 1 stormed ahead in the end in a knock out victory of 26-6.  Fantastic goals were scored by many players and both teams pulled together and played tremendously in a force of fiery wills to do their best for their teammates.  Well done to all who played to such a high standard on Sunday and thank you to all supporters who came to cheer us on from the sidelines.  Here’s to another fantastic korfball season 2016/2017!  Go DRAGONS!

Our next match is scheduled for Sunday 9th October 2016 when Dragons 1 will be taking on Bucks Royals.  Watch this space….

Didcot Dragons Tournament

Posted on

On Saturday 20th August 2016 Didcot Dragons Korfball Team hosted their annual tournament at St Edmonds Park, Didcot.  Thank you to all the teams who travelled from all over the country to play with us! A fantastic time was had by all with Cambridge City Korfball Club triumphing in the final match. (See team photo below.)

Well done to everybody who played, supported on the day, bought cakes, enjoyed a lunchtime BBQ and held strong against the adverse weather conditions.  The wind and rain was not ideal but everyone carried on throughout the day regardless.

A BIG thank you to our co-chairs Gemma Wilson and Laura Hathaway-Jenkins for organising it all and to everyone else who lent a hand on the day as they all did a marvellous job.

Watch this space for the return of our fun-packed tournament this time next year.  Now onwards and forwards to the new winter season!

It’s been a busy few months in the land of Didcot Korfball.

We had a successful tournament on 20 August – more information to follow.

We have attended some tournaments over the summer – and had lots of fun! Our first outdoor tournament of the year was in Bristol. We had a good day, and gained lots of experience.

Our AGM on May 10th elected this year’s committee. Please see the ‘Committee‘ page for more information.
