Sport in Spotlight!

Posted on Updated on

Last Tuesday the Dragons arrived at their new home for the next 8 weeks, Willowbrook Sports Centre in Didcot.  In our first indoor training session of the season we were lucky enough to welcome a very special guest in the form of Craig Punfield (@CraigOnTV) from That’s Oxford TV.  After an array of questions posed by Craig and action shots taken, we can now reveal that a very special piece on the Didcot Dragons will be appearing on Freeview Channel 7 on Wednesday 28th September at 8pm.  So keep your eyes peeled!

Thank you Craig for visiting.  We are already looking forward to our upcoming studio session with you!

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.
