All the matches in the North & West and South & East Promotion Divisions have been played. England Korfball can now confirm four of the five teams that will take part in the England Korfball League end-of-season promotional playoffs.

The England Korfball League promotion play-offs will take place over two days on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd May 2015 at Whitgift Sports Centre, Croydon.

From the North & West Promotion Division, BRISTOL THUNDER qualified after their 31-9 victory over Manchester Warriors.

MANCHESTER WARRIORS have also qualified from the North & West Promotion Division as Nottingham are not eligible to participate in the playoffs.

In the South & East Promotion Division, BEARSTED from Kent and south London’s CROYDON Korfball Club have achieved qualification for the playoffs.

Bearsted won a thrilling match on the 15th February against Croydon 17-15. Bearsted drew level in the match for the first time with just 90 seconds remaining and then scored two more goals.

The four teams from the Promotion Divisions will be joined by TORNADOES who have finished in 7th place in England Korfball’s Premier League in a five team play-off.

The top two teams after the play-offs will win a place in the top league in the country for the 2015/16 season.
