Duo Refereeing at the Finals

The England Korfball Premier and Promotion Divisions Semi-Final and Final weekends will be officiated using ‘Duo’ refereeing this season. 

Tickets are now on sale for the 2022 Finals

The use of Duo refereeing has been growing throughout Korfball over the last few years and has been trialled in the England Korfball Promotion Divisions this season.

The England Korfball Referee subcommittee (RSC) has been collecting feedback from the players, coaches, clubs, referees and assessors throughout the season and we are very happy with the performance of our Duo teams. 

As a result, the RSC has decided to use Duo refereeing teams for the Semi-Finals and Final weekends this season instead of a main referee with an assistant.

The referees who have been selected for appointment for the Semi Finals matches are listed below.  Congratulations to all the referees selected.

Premier Division Semi Final – Trojans v Norwich Knights

Chris West & Steve Jones

Premier Division Semi Final – Tornadoes v Bec

Adam Dibble & Azzy Sieber

Promotion Division Semi Final – Manchester Warriors v Bearsted

Jake Cooper & Kat Conley

Promotion Division Semi Final – Highbury v Southampton Spartans

Alex Zens & Joe Skeet

We will announce the appointments for the final round of matches after the completion of the Semi Finals.

Duo Refereeing?

Duo Refereeing operates with two equal referees officiating the game together on the court, rather than a single main referee supported by an assistant referee.  Both referees take responsibility for different areas of the court dynamically during the match, regularly communicating with each other through the use of headsets.

The England Korfball Finals are back! Do not miss out on the first chance in three years to experience a full on korfball atmosphere. The best teams in the country vie for the promotion and to be crowned national champions. We are back, but there is limited space! Do not miss out on the opportunity to see the crescendo of the 2021/22 season. BUY TICKETS >>>
